Femur shaft fractures in infants should be considered despite no known trauma
Femur shaft fractures in infants are rare and associated with abuse or fall from heights. The fracture is often easy to recognize on X-ray, however, the determination of the indication can be difficult. It is important to pay attention to pain signals from the extremity and the objective findings, such as a swollen and tight thigh. Early recognition of the fracture is of importance to the prognosis and to detection of possible violence resulting in battered child syndrome. Exploration for injuries of the extremities is of utmost necessity in these cases, despite the absence of trauma in the anamnesis.
