Galeazzi fracture describes a fracture of the radial diaphysis in association with distal radioulnar dislocation (most often dorsal). We conducted a retrospective study in the Department of Pediatric Orthopedic Trauma at the Mother-Child Hospital CHU Hassan II in Fez (Morocco). The study involved five male children. Four children underwent orthopedic treatment while one child underwent surgical reduction. Mean follow-up was 24 months (8-30).
