The authors present the case of a patient who was brought to the emergency department (ED) with severe left forearm pain following a classroom fall. This incident exacerbated the fractures that the patient experienced three months earlier in an accident. He had partial fractures of the middle radial and ulnar diaphyses. A review of the various presentations of forearm fractures and the nonoperative and surgical treatment options are discussed.
