Capsule Rupture

Joints are held in place and supported by ligaments and an outer covering known as the joint capsule. Trauma or chronic (long term) inflammation at the joint can cause the capsule to tear (rupture). This results in pain, swelling and toe deformity.

This can occur after the injection of a corticosteroid into the joint.

This problem is covered under capsulitis / synovitis
