(Redirected from Toddler's fracture)
 Discussion of Toddler fracture
- A Toddler’s fracture is a nondisplaced oblique fracture of the tibial shaft, which usually results from an indirect twisting or rotational force applied to the foot and lower leg.
- Such injuries commonly occur when a toddler stumbles and falls or attempts to extricate the foot from between the bars of a playpen or crib.
- Because of the mild clinical symptoms and frequent lack of a history of injury in young children with toddler’s fractures, presentation of the patient for evaluation may be delayed.
