ABSTRACT
The article presents a case study of an eighty-seven-year-old woman who fell from standing height and landed on her right arm. A varus deformity of the right humerus was shown and radial nerve function was not damaged on examination in the emergency department. A nonoperative course of treatment was selected, as the patient had several underlying comorbidities. A functional brace was added to treat the fracture, but complications occurred.
