SPECKER, Andrés  and  DUPONT, Marcelo. Distal Radius Fracture Combined with Scaphoid Fracture, in a 14-Year-Old Teenager. Anfamed [online]. 2020, vol.7, n.1, e407.  Epub June 01, 2020. ISSN 2301-1254.

Abstract: The association between distal radius fracture and scaphoid fracture is a rare association, in many cases the scaphoid fracture can be overlooked at the initial presentation. The early diagnosis allows a correct treatment avoiding possible complications in the follow-up. The case of a 14-year-old teenager with this association is presented. Closed reduction and percutaneous fixation was performed with Kirschner Wires at distal radius fracture, the scaphoid fracture was treated orthopedically with short-arm thumb spica cast. Consolidation of both fractures was obtained with excellent clinical results.
