Abstract

Plastic bending fractures are common in young children and, as just mentioned, most frequently occur in the bones of the forearm. To the unwary, however, they can be totally overlooked, and yet they are a painful injury for the patient. It is of the utmost importance to obtain comparative views in these patients. Without comparative views, it is often difficult for the inexperienced to clearly distinguish that a bending fracture is present. Furthermore, there are numerous normal bends of both the radius and ulna, and one should not misinterpret them as a bending fracture.
