Abstract

T-Condylar fracture of the distal humerus is rare in the skeletally immature children and is very rare in young children, under 9 years of age. This fracture has been classified  as:  type A ( minimally displaced or undisplaced), type B (displaced  but  not comminuted ) and type C (displaced and comminuted). Herein, we report a T-Condylar fracture of the distal humerus in a 5-yr-old boy. This fracture was diagnosed by plain radiography, and was treated by open reduction and internal fixation, as a type B T-Condylar fracture of distal humerus.
