Brief description/objective

Injuries occurring during soccer tend to occur with lower energy transfer than in some other contact sports. Tibial and femoral shaft fractures occasionally occur, but pelvic fractures are rare. We report a case of a missed posterior acetabular rim fracture, caused by a low energy trauma playing soccer, complicated by the development of avascular necrosis (AVN) of the femoral head and subsequent osteoarthritis.
