Seymour fractures occur in the form of juxta-epiphyseal fractures in the distal phalanx bone of children, which are often accompanied by nail bed injuries. These fractures are also associated with complications such as nail deformity, infection, and growth disturbance. This report introduces a 6-year-old boy whose Seymour fracture occurred with the interposition of the nail bed on the fracture site, resulting in nonunion and nail deformity in the form of bipartite growth. Nail bed injuries could be accompanied by Seymour fractures and their treatment is independent of the fracture treatment. Nail bed repair can prevent subsequent deformities.
