    Torus fractures (also known as buckle fractures) are incomplete fractures of the shaft of a long bone that is characterised by bulging of the cortex. They usually result from trabecular compression from an axial loading force (along long axis of bone). Usually seen in children, frequently involving the distal radial metaphysis. A subtle or obvious deformity or buckle of the cortex may be evident.

    Toddler fractures are minimally or undisplaced spiral fractures usually of the tibia, typically encountered in (you guessed it) toddlers. They are believed to be the result of new stresses placed on the bone due to recent and increasing ambulation. Conventional radiographs are all that are required, but multiple views may be necessary as the fracture is often inapparent on one view.
