BALADO VILORIA, Jorge; GARCIA AMARO, María; GIANCHANDANI GIANCHANDANI, Chandni  e  ACITORES SUZ, Elia. Why does this child take the cutlery wrong?. A case of radioulnar synostosis. Rev Pediatr Aten Primaria [online]. 2018, vol.20, n.77, pp.69-72. ISSN 1139-7632.

Radioulnar synostosis is an uncommon congenital anomaly, and often bilateral, that produces a limitation of the forearm's supination. The origin of the radius and ulnar's anomaly takes place when a stop is being produced in the differentiation of the cartilaginous outline of the radius and ulna during the embryonic period. There are different types of synostosis. In many cases, the symptoms are mild because they compensate the limitation of pronosupination with hypermobility of other joints of the upper members. The arms X-Ray gives the diagnosis. The treatment depends on the degree of functionality of the forearm. Surgical treatment would be indicated if there is a severe deformation in pronation that causes serious functional deficits. In any other case, the management will be conservative.
