Abstract

We present a case of a 13-year-old child with an isolated, closed rupture of the common femoral artery and no associated bony injury sustained as a result of blunt trauma. Though few isolated cases of femoral artery injury secondary to blunt trauma have been reported in the literature, most of them were the result of a bony/penetrating injury. The probable mechanism of injury is discussed.
