I recently came across a patient who complained of pain in her thumb.  On taking the case, it was a very peculiar mystery to find that she could not recall straining her thumb in any way at all.  On further questioning it was found that she spent a lot of time using her IPhone, and was a heavy texter.  This lead me to discover that she had a case of Blackberry Thumb Syndrome or ‘BTS’.

It would be interesting to see if anyone else has come accross this condition, and what course of treatment suggested.   Please post your comments.
