Abstract

We report the case of a 14-year-old boy who sustained a displaced triplane fracture of the distal radius. This was treated with closed reduction and application of a cast with good clinical and radiological results. We discuss (for the first time) the reasons for the rarity of this fracture at the distal radius compared to the distal tibia.
