Case:A 10-year-old boy presented with chronic ulnohumeral subluxation 6 months after an open reduction of a Milch type II lateral condyle fracture subluxation performed at another hospital. The patient had persistent elbow pain and limited range of motion (ROM) between 20° and 50°. After the open reduction for chronic ulnohumeral subluxation and corrective osteotomy for articular surface reconstruction, he had an uneventful recovery with improved ROM of the affected elbow and no pain.Conclusions:Intra-articular corrective osteotomy for articular surface reconstruction may be feasible to improve mobility and relieve pain in pediatric patients with lateral condylar malunion and elbow subluxation.
