Abstract

Madelung deformity is due to early closure of the medial aspect of the distal epiphysis of the radius. The main aim of this case report was to focus on the importance of early diagnosis of this deformity based on clinical and radiographic examination. Considering the rarity of the deformity and particularly taking into account the importance of early conservative management, it is clear that the presentation of this clinical case represents a major contribution to better understanding of madelung deformity.
