5th toe fracture - Salter-Harris type II

Discussion:

Salter-Harris classification is used to classify pediatric fractures involving the growth plate. Type II is the most common (85%). The fracture involves both the epiphyseal plate and the metaphysis. It has a good prognosis.

The metaphyseal fragment created between the physis and the fracture line is known as the Thurstan Holland fragment/sign.
