Abstract

CASE: A preterm neonate with biochemical rickets is found to have a Monteggia fracture. The infant underwent percutaneous pinning. There was loss of fixation; however, the infant has been followed since discharge from the hospital and has completely healed with full range of motion. CONCLUSIONS: The medical management of this entity involves enteral feedings and optimization of nutrients. The optimal surgical treatment of this injury in the neonatal period is not yet known, although percutaneous pinning resulted in normal healing and function. These aspects require clinician awareness of this unique fracture type in a premature patient with fragile bone.
