Injuries of the pelvis causing fractures in paediatric patients are rare injuries due to the elasticity of the bones and joints and account for 1-2% of all fractures in children. Injuries involving the tri-radiate cartilage are difficult to diagnose and have sequelae of growth arrest which are difficult to treat. Bony avulsion fractures are common in young children while acetabular and pubic or sacroiliac diastases are more common in adolescents. These injuries need radiographs and CT scanning for accurate characterization. Most injuries can be treated conservatively; however treatment needs to be individualized depending on the personality of the injury.
