I conducted a clinical review of thirty-nine fractures of the lateral condyle of the humerus in children and drew the following conclusions: (1) epiphyseal arrest is rare (it occurred in only one patient, despite malreduction in ten), and (2) fishtail deformity of the distal part of the humerus occurs commonly when malreduction is present. Only two poor results were encountered, both in patients in whom the reduction was grossly inadequate.
