Abstract

We report a case of a 7-year-old girl with a displaced Salter-Harris type III fracture of the distal fibula. To the best of our knowledge, this injury has not been previously reported. She was treated by open reduction and K-wiring. She has been asymptomatic after one year and the distal fibular growth plate remained open.
