An anterior–superior iliac spine avulsion fracture is an uncommon injury in adolescent athletes and simultaneous bilateral avulsion fracture is fairly rare. The authors report cases of traumatic avulsion fractures of anterior–superior iliac spine after sports activity in teenagers. Open reduction and cannulate screws fixation resulted in an excellent functional outcome for this relatively uncommon fracture. The authors also stress the importance of careful clinical examination and recommend open reduction and internal fixation for patients requiring rapid rehabilitation.
