In pediatric patients, proximal humeral physeal fractures are uncommon injuries compared with distal physeal fractures. Usually, the growth plate is the most vulnerable site of fracture in the proximal humerus. Proximal humeral physeal fractures accompanying posterior shoulder dislocation are very rare. There are few recent reports on the combination of glenohumeral dislocation and proximal humerus fractures. Here, we describe a case of posterior shoulder dislocation with ipsilateral proximal humerus type 2 physeal fracture in a 9-year-old boy. We treated the patient by closed reduction and percutaneous pinning under general anesthesia.
