x-ray series

By John E Fortune, MD A serial x-ray of a two-year-old child with a badly

displaced femur fracture, showing gradual realignment of the bone over

the course of six months. No reduction was performed. Children rarely

need surgery for these types of fractures because dramatic plastic

remodeling is possible in the very young.
