Résumé

Nous rapportons le cas d’un garçon de 13ans ayant consulté pour une raideur et une douleur du coude apparues en plusieurs années. Il avait pour seul antécédent une fracture supracondylienne (FSC) fermée non déplacée survenue 7ans auparavant et d’évolution favorable. Les examens ont montré l’existence d’une hypoplasie de la joue latérale de la trochlée et d’importantes lésions arthrosiques. Nous rappelons que les FSC de l’humérus sont fréquentes chez l’enfant et que la réduction en urgence diminue les risques de complications. Cependant, cette observation montre que l’hypoplasie de la joue latérale de la trochlée est une complication tardive grave qui peut survenir dans les suites d’une FSC de l’humérus sans critère de gravité et d’évolution initiale simple.

Summary

We report the case of a 13-year-old boy presenting with stiffness and pain in the elbow, which had appeared a few years before consultation. He reported a history of a closed, nondisplaced supracondylar fracture of the humerus 7 years before. Progression was good after orthopedic treatment. X-rays and CT showed a distinctive deformation, called a fishtail deformity, associated with severe arthritic injuries. We recall here that supracondylar fractures of the humerus are common in children and that early reduction decreases the complication rate. However, this case shows that fishtail deformity is a late and serious complication, which may occur after a nondisplaced supracondylar fracture of the humerus, with no severity factors and with good early progression.
