Abstract

Ten cases of linear, hairline fractures of the proximal ulna are presented. These fractures are subtle and frequently missed. However, if one appreciates the underlying mechanism for their production and knows where to look for them, there is far less chance that they will be missed. These fractures can occur alone or in association with other fractures around the elbow, but it is in their isolated form that they are most likely to be missed.
