Transepiphyseal separation of distal Humerus: A case report and review of literature

Author(s):

Dinesh Dhar

Abstract:

Transepiphyseal fracture of distal humerus (TFDH) in a infant is a rare injury which is often missed due to lack of ossific nuclei around distal humerus and mistaken for elbow dislocation. Plain radiaographs of elbow fail to detect this injury. We report a case of delayed diagnosis of TFDH in a one year old1 boy which was managed conservatively with good functional outcome.
