Introduction: Paediatric carpal bone fractures are rare, and usually secondary to significant direct trauma. Diagnosis can commonly be missed or the significance of the injury not completely recognised on presentation. During development, the ossification centre of each individual carpal bone is surrounded by a spherical growth plate. This acts as a protective barrier against injury. As the child reaches adolescence the critical bone-to-cartilage ratio is reached, and so, carpal bone fractures start to become more common. Case description: A 12 year-old boy presented to the emergency department with right wrist pain following a fall from his bicycle while travelling at speed. The impact was sustained directly on to an outstretched hand, resulting in a closed injury. Radiographs demonstrated a dorsally displaced Salter-Harris III fracture of the distal radius with associated displaced fractures of the ulna styloid and lunate. The patient reported reduced sensation and tingling in the thumb, index and radial aspect of middle finger consistent with the distribution of the median nerve. Motor supply was intact. The fracture was initially mobilised with a dorsal plaster slab. The patient was taken to theatre the following morning for manipulation under anaesthetic and plaster immobilisation. Satisfactory reduction of the distal radius fracture was achieved with the lunate and ulnar styloid fractures not addressed. Median nerve symptoms improved somewhat following the procedure but did not completely resolve. At 10 days post-operatively check radiographs demonstrated the distal radius fracture reduction to be maintained and the plaster cast was changed to a lightweight below elbow full cast which remained in situ for 6 weeks. Radiographs at 6 weeks demonstrated union of the distal radius fracture but no signs of healing of the ulnar styloid or lunate fractures. Median nerve sensory symptoms had improved. The cast was removed and range of motion exercises begun. An MRI was performed showing a non-united fracture of the lunate without signs of avascular necrosis. The patient is now 6 months post-op and currently asymptomatic with a full painless range of motion. He has returned to his pre-morbid level of function being actively involved in physical education at school and reports no pain in the wrist or functional deficit. Radiographs continue to demonstrate a lunate non-union. Results and Conclusions: Paediatric lunate fractures are very rare, and as a result there is very little published literature available. Previous case reports have demonstrated good long-term results from both conservative and operative management of paediatric carpal fractures. A case report by Bhatnagar et al. highlighted a good clinical outcome with nonoperative treatment of an active 11-year old boy with multiple carpal fractures. They demonstrated asymptomatic full range of motion of the wrist at 3 years follow-up, despite CT at this stage showing non-union of a hamate fracture. Similarly, there have been good clinical outcomes with operative management. Kamano et al. showed effective results in a child with multiple carpal fractures treated with wire fixation followed to twenty-nine months. In 2009, Foley et al. also demonstrated similar outcomes in a 10-year old boy treated with Kirschner wires. In this patient, bone union was achieved and there was pain free full range of movement of the wrist at 1 year follow-up.
