This 5yo girl fell forward onto her outstretched hand and has forearm pain. There is no deformity, swelling, or severe pain, but she holds her arm to her side protectively. Your triage colleague orders Xrays:

Forearm AP view
Forearm Lateral view

The Orthopedic faculty will provide clinical pearls related to this case 1 week after posting.
Thank you!
