The management of fractures in children is a separate entity from that of an adult, since, the growing bone possesses an immense power of growth and remodeling. That fractures in children could cause growth acceleration has been known since 1867. This has been established through different studies, but no clearcut principles to guide the management of these fractures have evolved to date. We have conducted a study on 75 children with fractures of the long bones of the lower limb and have tried to establish the relationship of growth disturbances with the age of the patient, nature of the fracture and the amount of displacement.
