Extensor Digiti Minimi

Pronuncation DIH-jih-tee MIN-ih-mee
Derivation Extensor of the smallest (minimi) finger (digiti).

The shape of this muscle is closely aligned with extensor digitorum. Its origin is the same, and their inserting tendons on the little finger are neighbors. Extensor digiti minimi will sometimes appear around the middle third of a musclular, tensed forearm, as a thin strip sandwiched between extensor digitorum and extensor carpi ulnaris.
