Medical condylar fracture of humerus including a part or whole of the trochlea is a rare fracture in children. It is likely to be misdiagnosed as avulsion of medical epicondyle which is relatively more frequent. In patients where there is visible ossification of trochlea or this fracture includes a significant chunk of metaphysis, the diagnosis is no problem. There have been isolated case reports of this uncommon injury (Cothay 1967, Chacha 1970). Varma and Srivastava reported 4 cases from this country in 1972. Three cases of medial condylar fracture of humerus before the development of ossific centre in trochlea are being reported in this paper.
