PMID:  9152695     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
The purpose of this article is to remind accident and emergency doctors of an easily missed injury-isolated traumatic radial head dislocation in children. We present two such cases. This is a very uncommon injury and the diagnosis was overlooked in both cases. A high index of suspicion is necessary and careful examination of the radiographs is mandatory. The radiographic appearance of this injury is explained.
