The Loyère sign examines the tip of the sacral styloid process and the ulnar styloid process to aid in the diagnosis of distal radius fractures. The patient rolled up the sleeve and the palm of the hand extended downward from the affected side of the forearm. The examiner touched the tip of the sacral styloid process and the ulnar styloid process. If the two styloid processes are on the same horizontal line, or the ulnar styloid process is lower than the sacral styloid process , it is the Loyère sign.
