Vertical fracture line through the trapezoid bone, running mainly in the coronal plane. No displacement. Haemorrhagic (T1 hyperintense) effusion in the radial wrist joint.
Isolated fractures of the trapezoid bone are uncommon, due to its protected position. It actually is the least commonly fractured carpal bone.
