ABSTRACT

An elbow dislocation with associated incarcerated coronoid fracture in a child is a rare injury. No prior cases of this clinical scenario have been described in the English literature. Radiographs, including a true lateral and contralateral elbow views, are vital to identify the lack of joint congruency. This case underscores the importance of thorough postreduction physical examination, including range of motion and stability, and radiograph interpretation. Suspicion for an entrapped fracture should be high in a patient with a lack of joint congruency, residual joint instability, and limited range of motion following attempted reduction.
