In this paper we present a case of a female bat (nyctalus noctula) found with a complete closed fracture in the third middle of the right radius diaphysea. Therapeutic protocol consisted of applying a fixed bandage with a removable plastic splint covered with synthetic adhesive material after providing analgesia and anesthesia. Radiological images after immobilization show correct positioning of the fracture. Post interventional indication was to maintain the bandage for 6 weeks in order to keep the two bone segments (distal and proximal radial) in physiological anatomical relationships, to monitor his integrity and to provide analgesia since it is reported a high degree of auto mutilation. Analgesia was continued for 5 days.
