Abstract

Pelvic fracture urethral injuries are uncommon injuries that are frequently overlooked in the emergency department. We present a case of a 2-year-old girl whose urethral trauma was initially missed and potentially worsened by the placement of a urinary catheter. The clinical and diagnostic features of these rare injuries are discussed along with the controversies surrounding urinary catheter placement and retrograde urethrography.
