Distal physeal fractures of the femur are rare fractures that often present various difficulties in the postoperative regimen. The classification and dislocation of the fracture has a therapeutical and prognostic value in terms of treatment planning and growth disturbances. Follow-up after these fractures is recommended in order to detect malunion or anisomelia. We present a 13-year old girl with a distal SH-type II physeal fracture that was treated by open reduction and internal fixation. The patient had to undergo a computed tomography to establish the extent of injury prior to treatment.
