Abstract: The distal fracture of humerus at birth is rare. It may lead to delay diagnosis or misdiagnosis. Diagnosis is meanly done with plain radiography confirmed by ultra sonography or MRI. We report a case of distal fracture of humerus at birth which has been treated with closed reduction and stabilised with cast for three weeks. A flow up of eight years showed no complications and full healed fracture with no complains. rnAuthors reporting similar cases showed that precoce diagnosis and orthopedic treatment for this type of fracture is efficient to complete heal with neither growth nor functional complications.
