Traumatic separation of the distal humeral epiphysis during delivery is an uncommon injury in neonates and usually mimics elbow dislocation. Emergency medicine physicians and orthopedic surgeons must have a high index of suspicion for distal humeral epiphysis separation when evaluating elbow trauma in neonates. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan is an important diagnostic tool for this purpose. We report a case in which fracture-separation of the distal humeral epiphysis in a newborn was diagnosed with the help of ultrasonography and MRI scan, which provided a clear delineation of the injury.
