Collapse Box


The supracondylar process, a bony, beak-like spur on the anteromedial surface of the distal humerus, is a rare congenital abnormality. We present a rare case of a 20-month-old child showing rapid growth of the supracondylar process over 16 months that required surgical excision. A supracondylar process in a young patient may show a tendency for rapid growth.
