Abstract

A 12-year-old boy presented to our emergency department complaining of pain and functional limitation on his right ankle after an indirect trauma. Plain radiographs were taken identifying a type II epiphysiolysis of the distal tibia and a proximal fibula fracture. An open reduction and internal fixation was performed without transyndesmal fixation. Maisonneuve fractures are an uncommon injury in the pediatric population. This fracture pattern has not been described by the Dias-Tachdjian classification. It is important to bear in mind that, based on the need for osteosynthesis for the epiphysiolysis, the treatment of these fractures in children usually differs from that in the adults as no transyndesmal screw fixation is required.
