An unusual case of distal phalanx fracture in a horse


An unusual case of distal phalanx fracture in a horse



Veterinary Record 137(24): 613-615



ISSN/ISBN: 0042-4900

PMID: 8746851

A mature Thoroughbred cross gelding with an acute onset forelimb lameness was found to have sustained a fracture to the distal phalanx. The fracture traversed the distal phalanx in a lateromedial direction dividing the phalanx into halves, dorsally and palmarly and was classed as a frontal fracture. The horse was treated conservatively and after 14 months rest it returned to work.
