Abstract

Falling is likely to occur in daily life and sports activities cause from right injury to severe injury in the upper extremity. The injuries from falls can range from contusion and sprain to fracture and dislocation. The injury occurs on the upper extremity more than on the lower extremity because people put their hands out to protect themselves from the body. Radiography (X-ray) can quickly diagnose a fracture because of the fracture line. In this case report, a 20-year-old woman slipped and put her hand to protect her body during ice-skating. The radius is a fine fracture line that could not be diagnosed by X-ray in this case even though magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) presented a fracture line.
