A 12-year-old male patient came to our outpatient department with a complaint of pain in the left hip region after he slipped and fell on a wet floor while playing at school. The symptoms were pain left the hip region with functional impairment, difficulty in walking, tenderness on inguinal region palpation, and restricted hip movements. The X-ray and computed tomography scan showed an avulsion fracture of the left lesser trochanter. The treatment included rest, immobilization, analgesia, and non-weight bearing. After a 9-month follow-up, the patient had a completely normal range of motion and was fully able to do all his daily activities
