Abstract

Madelung deformity is an uncommon pathology caused by a growth disorder of the anteromedial part of the distal radius growth plate. It can occurs in isolate or in the context of some syndromes. This growth disorder leads to a disturbance in the anatomy of the wrist joint which drifts into its obvious deformity, which is set progressively restricting wrist’s motion and sometimes inducing local pain. Distal forearm’s X-ray gives the diagnosis showing radius bowing, posterior projection of the ulnar head and anterior projection of the carpus. We present the case of an adolescent woman who came to our Emergency Department for nontraumatic wrist joint deformity.
