BOSTON (A)-Veteran Frisbee
throwers, who can toss the
plastic disc hundreds of times
on a good afternoon, may have
noticed a slight abrasion on the
middle finger of their throwing
This is Frisbee finger.
IN A LETTER published yes-
terday in the New England
Journal of Medicine, Dr. Mark
Dembert and medical student
Halley Faust, both of Philadel-
phia, assess the causes and
treatment for the malady.
"We have found that Frisbee
finger has a higher rate among
city dwellers because constant
use of the Frisbee on hard sur-
faces such as concrete produces
jagged edges, which intensify
and facilitate the abrasive ac-
tion on the middle finger," the
authors say.
"The syndrome does occur
with overuse of smooth-edged
Frisbees as well, however, and

should not be ruled out in sub-
jects from more rural settings."
DEMBERT, an intern at the
U.S. Naval Hospital in Philadel-
phia, said in an interview that
he and Faust, a senior at Jef-
ferson Medical College, wrote
the letter to the journal "in sort
of jest."
"But it has medical validity,"
Dembert said. "While I don't
think Blue Cross will ever list
this as a treatable injury, it's
something a lot of people might
come up against."
Dembert and Faust, both avid
Frisbee players, said the Fris-
bee glides off the middle finger
as it is thrown. And this can
cause an abrasion, sometimes
serious and blistering.
The best treatment for Fris-
bee finger is abstinence because
continued use of a rough Fris-
bee will rip off a bandage. and
irritate the wound, they say.
