A longitudinal fracture of the sacrum without an associated neurologic deficit is described. It was treated by bedrest successfully. The case is compared to the usual transverse or oblique sacral fracture: we feel that because the sacral nerve roots were pushed to either side of the fracture there were no neurologic problems in the case presented.
