We present a case of a six -year old child with wrist pain after sustaining trauma the previous day. The x -ray revealed a torus fracture of the distal radio metaphysis. The torus fracture is one of the fractures occurring in the immature skeleton. Some speci- fic types of children fractures are described as well as the value of the imaging techniques for the diagnosis.
