ABSTRACT

We report a displaced femoral shaft fracture that occurred with no sign of contact-induced, stress, fatigue, or previous abnormal bone pathology in a 19-y-old man who kicked the ground instead of the ball when playing soccer. After examination to rule out abnormal bone pathology, intramedullary nailing was performed. Bone union was achieved and he could return to recreational soccer. Among soccer injuries, the occurrence of displaced femoral shaft fractures in the absence of stress, fatigue, or pathological fracture is rare. Awareness of such a rare cause of displaced femoral shaft fracture would help clinicians in the field of sports and soccer medicine.

Key words: Femoral shaft fracture, soccer, sports
