Abstract

Acute traumatic transphyseal fracture of the capital femoral epiphysis in children is a rare but serious injury. The injury is typically inflicted by a severe trauma. Because of the vulnerability and predisposed anatomy of the femoral epiphysis in relation to its blood supply, the fracture has been designated to have poor prognosis with inevitable osteonecrosis and eventual deformity of the hip. We report a case of such fracture in a 13 year-old child in view to highlight some of the anticipated problems in the management of such injury.
