Scapular body fracture and concomitant inferior angle apophyseal separation with intrathoracic displacement: a case report.

A 10-year-old patient presented to the emergency room after a motor vehicle accident. The patient was diagnosed with left scapular body fracture and concomitant inferior angle apophyseal separation with intrathoracic displacement causing hemopneumothorax. The displaced scapular body was reduced surgically and separated apophysis of the inferior angle was fixed to the scapular body with absorbable suture. Postoperative 2-year follow-up showed a good result. A literature search found two pediatric cases of intrathoracic displacement of scapular body fracture. There was no previous report of apophyseal separation of the inferior angle of the scapula.
