Fracture through the physis with metaphyseal extension of the fracture line.
The metaphyseal fragment created between the physis and the fracture line is known as the "Thurstan Holland" fragment/sign. Note: "Thurston", often spelt with an 'o', is actually an incorrect, albeit dominant, spelling of "Thurstan".
