Introduction: Pediatric elbow fractures have both a higher incidence and a greater variability in fracture patterns as compared with adults. Materials and Methods: All patients aged 3-13 years presenting to the department of orthopedics with injuries around the elbow joint and fulfilling the inclusion criteria were included in the study. Results: Elbow injuries are more common in male children (n = 88, 70.4%). Further elbow injuries on the left arm are more common. Conclusion: Understanding the agewise distribution of fractures among children will help us to plan prevention.
