SIERRA, Martín; DUPONT, Marcelo  and  PEREZ, María Elena. Traumatic osteochondral knee fracture in pediatric age. Report of a case. Anfamed [online]. 2021, vol.8, n.1, e401.  Epub June 01, 2021. ISSN 2301-1254.

Traumatic osteochondral fractures (OCF) of the knee in pediatric age are injuries that accompany up to 30% of acute patellar dislocations (APD). If high clinical suspicion is not maintained, its diagnostic delay is frequent, and may generate potential complications. Incidentally, we present the case of a 12-year-old patient with a post-APD OCF that went unnoticed in the first consultation, requiring fixation of the osteochondral fragment with HCS screws at 5 months. Achieving an excellent functional result at 54 months follow-up.

Keywords : pediatric age; osteochondral fracture; acute dislocation of the patella; knee.
