Ankle fracture with involvement of the growth plate is the second most common paediatric fracture after the distal radius. The most common fracture type according to Salter Harris (SH) is type II of the distal tibia combined with green stick of the fibula. Isolated fracture of the distal fibular growth plate is not common and as a rule it does not give any growth arrest. We describe a case of isolated fibular fracture SH type II in a ten year-old girl which ended with symptomatic valgus deformity of the ankle. The patient was operated with good results.
