Pediatric Hand Injuries


A child is instinctively inquisitive. Watching a child at work or play explains why the hand is the most frequently injured part of the body. Anything that lies within a hand’s reach is likely to be probed. Whenever at risk of injury, the hand is most often thrust out protectively, resulting in a wide array of muscoloskeletal injuries.

Pediatric injuries are distinct. There are several general points to remember: Most often, no adult knows how the injury occurred; reliability of history varies inversely with the age of the child. An injured child is frightened and so are the parents. Never forget that the hand is attached to an entire body. One should rule out other life threatening injuries first.
