MOURA, Marina Vimieiro Timponi de. Trapped periosteum in a distal femoral physeal injury: magnetic resonance imaging evaluation. Radiol Bras [online]. 2012, vol.45, n.3, pp.184-186. ISSN 0100-3984.

Epiphyseal fractures are frequently associated with knee trauma during sports in children and adolescents. Usually, Salter-Harris types I and II fractures are conservatively treated. However, failed closed reduction of displaced fractures suggest the presence of trapped periosteum, with indication for surgery. The present report describes a case of Salter-Harris type I fracture of the distal femur in a child, complicated with trapped periosteum detected at magnetic resonance imaging.

Keywords : Trapped periosteum; Physeal injury; Magnetic resonance imaging; Femur.
