Pisiform Bone Dislocation in a Pediatric Patient: What is the Best Treatment? Case Report and Review of the Literature.

Traumatic dislocation of the pisiform bone (PB) is a rare injury of the carpal bones, especially in pediatric patients. A few cases were reported, and there is no consensus about the treatment. Each author supports his own method, such as an open reduction internal fixation (ORIF) approach or a closed reduction. However, failures of both techniques with recurrent dislocation of the PB have been reported in the literature. In this article, a fracture dislocation of the PB was treated with ORIF in an 11-year-old boy with a greenstick radial fracture. In addition, a review of the literature about pisiform fracture dislocation in children has been made.
