Abstract

Trauma in children is major cause of morbidity and mortality and motor vehicle accident (MVA) is the most common cause of blunt trauma. Often times multiple organ systems are affected in MVA e.g. chest injury accompanied by head injury or abdominal visceral rupture. Thoracic vascular injury is rare in children but can prove life threatening if not treated promptly. The diagnosis of such injuries poses a challenge and sometimes different diagnostic modalities could show contradicting diagnosis. In such a situation it may be prudent to do further investigation with another modality; but clinical condition has to be taken into consideration.
