Abstract

Pediatric fractures sometimes are complicated by growth disturbances. Most reported growth disturbances are in the lower extremity and can entail growth arrest or overgrowth. We report a case of overgrowth and angular deformity after an extraphyseal distal radius fracture that resulted in clinically significant pain and functional impairment because of palmar instability of the distal ulna. A dome osteotomy was successful in treating the patient's wrist pain, distal radioulnar instability, and multiplanar deformity of the distal radius.
