Author information

  • 1Department of Surgery, Helsingør Hospital, Hillerød, Denmark.


We recorded all the distal forearm fractures in inhabitants under 20 years of age in Frederiksborg County, Denmark, throughout 1985. The population at risk was 97,791 persons, and fractures occurred in 269 boys and 205 girls. The peak incidence in girls occurred at ages 10-12 (105 per 10,000) and in boys at ages 12-14 (100 per 10,000). Fractures occurred more often in the autumn than in the spring.
