Abstract Fragility fractures of the pelvis are common and the incidence is increasing with the aging population. The primary risk factor is osteoporosis. Diagnosis is challenging and advanced imaging with computed tomography (CT), bone scintigraphy, and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is helpful. These injuries result in significant morbidity, including prolonged hospitalization, immobility, and loss of autonomy in previously active patients. The mortality rate is high, similar to hip fracture patients. This problem is underappreciated and deserves attention. An opportunity exists to improve outcomes with medical and surgical management.
