Another angry adolescent: another boxer's fracture?

, : Another angry adolescent: another boxer's fracture?. Pediatric Emergency Care 30(8): 558-560

Hand injuries are a common chief complaint in the pediatric population presenting for emergency care. Adolescents, in particular, often present with trauma to their hands after punching objects. The most frequent result of this action is a fracture to one or more of their metacarpals, also known as a boxer's fracture. However, we present a case with this common mechanism that resulted in an uncommon injury, carpometacarpal joint dislocations.
