Multiple hereditary exostosis (MHE) can cause progressive skeletal deformities (eg, ulnar shortening, bowing, radial head dislocation) in the upper extremity. Various procedures have been used to correct forearm deformity in children with MHE. The timing of these procedures, however, is controversial. An 11-year-old boy with known MHE presented 7 months after onset of left elbow pain and loss of flexion-extension to 40° to 120°. Radiographs showed a distal ulna osteochondroma, ulnar shortening… CONTINUE READING
