Abstract: Fracture healing is a complex repair process with the primary objective of restoring the mechanical function of the fractured bone (1). Quantifying outcome in clinical fracture healing trials remains challenging (2,3). Using highresolution peripheral quantitative computed tomography (HR-pQCT) in combination with micro finite element analysis (FEA), we previously described the typical healing of a distal radius fracture. This process consists of an increase in bone density of the trabecular compartment peaking at 6 wk post fracture, corresponding to the formation of a mineralized fracture callus (4,5). In the present case report, we describe a patient who deviated from this usually observed pattern of fracture healing.
