This 2yo boy healthy boy fell off out of bed. He is crying, refusing to move the left elbow, which is swollen. He has pain with all movement of his elbow and tenderness to palpation of the lateral elbow.
Xray from your triage colleague:

Elbow AP view
Elbow ‘lateral’ view- actually oblique

The Orthopedic faculty will provide clinical pearls related to considerations around elbow injuries in 1 week.
Thank you!
