Abstract: We report two cases of dysplasia epiphysealis hemimelica (Trevor's disease) at the PIP level of the finger. In one girl the first radiographic signs were seen at the age of 4 years, and progressive clinodactyly required treatment at the age of 7 years. She underwent an osteotomy. The second girl was seen with a clinodactyly and the accessory growth center was present already at the age of 5 years. The intra-articular exostosis was removed. Both had a complete correlation and a full range of motion.
