Fracture of os capitatum and os triquetrum in a child

Ugeskr Læger 2019;181:V08180527

This is a case report of a seven-year-old boy with fractures of the capitate and triquetral bone. An X-ray revealed fractures of the capitate and triquetral bone, and a CT scan showed non-dislocated fractures suitable for conservative treatment. The patient was treated with a shin cast for four weeks and had full recovery. Fractures of both the capitate and triquetral bone in children under the age of ten have not previously been reported. Fractures of the carpal bones should be suspected and examined in children with relevant trauma and symptoms.
