Journal of Orthopaedic Trauma: January 1999 - Volume 13 - Issue 1 - p 60-63 Buy Abstract Ipsilateral elbow and forearm fractures are quite rare in children. We present a Monteggia lesion with ipsilateral supracondylar humerus fracture in a 13-year-old girl. Through early surgical management, a successful result was achieved. We believe that, to minimize any initial or subsequent complications in such fractures, early surgical management should be the first treatment choice. © 1999 Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, Inc.
