Greenstick fracture of the mid to distal radial and ulnar diaphyses.
A typical greenstick fracture is observed here, with mild to moderate radial angulation of the fracture sites and incomplete fracture on the concave (radial) aspect of the fractures. This is a common fracture pattern in children due to the pliable nature of the bone. This fracture is in contrast to a torus fracture, which is also commonly seen in pediatric patients.
