1. Eleven cases of autogenous epiphyseal transplantations to the hand and forearm are presented. In all cases, the epiphysis was transplanted as a free graft.

2. In one patient there was definite evidence of growth eight years after transplantation of a proximal phalanx. In two other cases, there was some evidence of growth two years after transplantation.

3. The reasons for success or failure following epiphyseal transplantation are not apparent. Continued investigation seems warranted.
