Incomplete fracture of the distal radius with cortical break of the convex surface - a greenstick fracture.
Distal radial fractures are one of the commonest fractures in paediatric patients and often result from falls off bikes and trampolines, or collisions during contact sports.
They are usually incomplete fractures with distal radial metaphyseal torus fractures being commoner than diaphyseal greenstick fractures (this case).
