Abstract

Pain in the ulnar aspect of the pediatric wrist is an uncommon problem; however, when pain does occur it is usually the result of antecedent bony trauma or an underlying skeletal abnormality, which may lead to ulnar-sided wrist pain of varying etiology. The clinician must to be able to identify these entities within the pediatric wrist in order to make the appropriate diagnosis and plan for surgical intervention to prevent ongoing damage to the distal radioulnar joint (DRUJ). This article reviews the etiology, clinical presentation, and treatment strategies for the management of the unique problems that can affect the pediatric and adolescent DRUJ.
