Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Stress fractures are a common injury among adolescent athletes and military recruits. The increase in child participation in organized sport activities has contributed to the inclusion of the skeletally immature age group among those who may suffer from this problem. Bilateral simultaneous symmetric tibial stress fractures that are infrequent in older children are even more rare in toddlers. This entity may cause a diagnostic problem as it must be differentiated from infectious disease, acute trauma or even from the result of a battered child.
