The case presented consisted of one of the medical assistance experts reports in the scope of the Federal Court and reached the grant of benefit-sickness benefit with subsequent conversion to retirement. Noticeable was the unusual nature of the mechanical trauma, considering that the forceful action did not receive more attention initially because of the small intensity of the applied force and the reduced extension of the anatomical area affected. The incapacitating damage was of lymphatic order in the dominant hand. The methods of qualitative exploration of the data made available in the casefile and literature review were used for the analysis. The objective is to present an unusual condition in which the damage dispenses verifications through imaging tests and, in itself, allows the establishment of a causal link. The conclusion was that the collection of professional data, a history of the alleged incapacitating condition and a well-performed physical examination suffice to reach a conviction about the need to grant social security benefits in cases such as this.
