Fracture neck of the femur is rare in children and occurs following severe trauma. Several recommendations have been made for the treatment of displaced transcervical fracture type 11 (Delbet classification). However there are no recommendations when such a fracture occurs after recent acute osteomyelits of the neck of the femur. The management of a case is described with the outcome after 36 months.
