The supracondylar process of the humerus is a relatively rare but well-known anatomic variant that can be associated with other anomalies. While it usually remains clinically silent, the spur can be responsible for a wide spectrum of symptoms. We present 3 patients with fractures of the supracondylar process and review 12 other cases in the literature. The supracondylar process has potential for fracture and important neurovascular sequelae.
