Carpal coronal fractures are rare. We report the case of a 15 year-old male who fell from a balcony and suffered a displaced coronal fracture of the capitate, hamate and triquetrum. The diagnosis, which was initially made based on the X-rays, was confirmed by CT scan. Open reduction and internal fixation using Herbert screws was performed. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first published case of a coronal fracture of these three bones. The patient returned to normal activities after six months.
