Femur fractures are common in pediatric population. However, traumatic vascular injuries secondary to femoral shaft fractures were rarely reported in the literature. Major signs of the vascular injury are including pulselessness, enlarging pulsatile haematoma, bruit, thrill, haemorrhage and acute ischemia. Vascular injury may present even if in the presence of the distal pulses of the limb. We report a case of 5 year old child who presented with superficial femoral artery thrombosis due to proximal femoral shaft fracture. We emphasize the significance of suspicion of vascular injuries associated with femoral shaft fractures in pediatric population and the influence of the current research on the future studies.
