Patient

Age: 5

Same patient as in case: 318 

H&P

Fell when playing, mechanism of trauma unknown.

Technical description of the examination

X-ray of left elbow. This is not an exact side projection. The picture is of an 5 year old boy, and we can therefore see open epiphyseal line in the distal humerus and missing ossification of the olecranon.
