Variant of Galeazzi fracture-dislocation in children.

Author information

  • 1Hamot Medical Center, Erie, Pennsylvania.


Fractures of the radial shaft associated with disruption of the distal ulnar radial joint (Galeazzi fracture) account for a small percentage of forearm fractures in adults but occur even more rarely in children. An equivalent injury in children is a fracture of the radius with separation of the distal ulnar physis in the form of a Salter-Harris type II epiphyseal fracture. Although this lesion has been mentioned in the literature, to our knowledge it has not been described in detail. We report three cases of this fracture. All cases were treated by open reduction internal fixation.
