Observations on the neurological complications in 180 cases of displaced supracondylar fractures of the humerus in children are presented, with particular reference to the nerve involved, the nature of the lesion and its course. Eight percent of children with displaced supracondylar fractures had neurological complication and median nerve was found 4 times more vulnerable than the radial nerve. Nerve injuries recovered spontaneously in all the cases.
