Abstract

MORULE, MA; GOLELE, SS  and  GOLELE, RG. Ipsilateral medial and lateral condylar fracture of the humerus in a 4-year-old boy. SA orthop. j. [online]. 2013, vol.12, n.3, pp. 54-57. ISSN 2309-8309.

T-Condylar humeral fractures in children are rare. Medial condylar, lateral epicondylar, and T-condylar fractures combined, constitute less than 1% of all fractures in the elbow. Rarer is a T-condylar fracture in a skeletally immature child. We present a case of a T-condylar fracture in a 4-year-old boy following a fall on a flexed elbow.

Keywords : T-condylar; distal humerus; paediatric; fracture.
