Abstract Forearm fractures are common in the pediatric population and are mostly treated by cast immobilization. The purposes of this study were first to determine whether forearm fractures in adolescents are associated with abnormal bone mineral density (BMD) or content (BMC) at the time of fracture, and second, to quantify the bone mineral loss at various sites due to cast-mediated immobilization.
