Distal Ulna Fracture With Delayed Ulnar Nerve Palsy in a Baseball Player

Distal Ulna Fracture With Delayed Ulnar Nerve Palsy in a Baseball Player

American Journal of Orthopedics 45(2): 86-88

We present a case report of a college baseball player who sustained a blunt-trauma, distal-third ulna fracture from a thrown ball with delayed presentation of ulnar nerve palsy. Even after his ulna fracture had healed, the nerve injury made it difficult for the athlete to control a baseball while throwing, resulting in a delayed return to full baseball activity for 3 to 4 months. He had almost complete nerve recovery by 6 months after his injury and complete nerve recovery by 1 year after his injury.
