Özet

A 4-year-old boy was transferred from another hospital to the authors' institution for evaluation and treatment of a pathologic fracture of the left femur. The child had a 5-month history of mild limp and pain in his left proximal thigh. He was knocked over by a dog on the day of admission and subsequently was unable to ambulate.
