ABSTRACT
Segmental fractures of the radius and ulna are relatively common in adults, often occurring after high energy trauma. Segmental forearm fractures in children have not previously been reported, and their optimal management is unclear. We report a child of eight years of age who underwent fixation of these injuries with a good outcome.
