Abstract

In children, humeral biepicondylar fracture is extremely rare among traumas involving elbow region. The main goal should be to provide elbow stability in these patients. Thus, open reduction plus internal fixation should be performed in these cases. Here, we aimed to present an 11-year-old patient with biepicondylar humeral fracture without elbow dislocation, which is rarely seen among pediatric elbow traumas.
