Abstract

Severe musculoskeletal injuries, resulting in bone and soft-tissue loss, are often caused by high-energy trauma (i.e. falling from heights and road accidents), and many ultimately lead to extreme limitations in motor functions due to fracture complications or amputations. Traumatic bone injuries are very rare in children and are usually detected following open fractures, and their initial or delayed treatment depends on the conditions of the patient’s soft tissue. Here, a rare case of A 13-year-old male patient was referred to the under study hospital due to a roll over car accident with a crush injury, both-bone fracture of the forearm, and radius defects, and the spontaneous repair of the post-traumatic radius defect healing without delayed intervention is presented.
