Clin J Sport Med. 1995 Oct;5(4):262-4. doi: 10.1097/00042752-199510000-00011.


Stress fractures are infrequently seen in non-weight-bearing bones. However, stress fractures may be present in any bone that undergoes repetitive stress. We report an unusual case of stress fracture in the nondominant arm of a tennis player who uses a two-handed backhand stroke.
