Abstract

An unusual case is presented in which minor soft tissue injury may have caused premature asymmetrical closure of the proximal tibial physis resulting in a 30° genu recurvatum that necessitated corrective osteotomy. Awareness of the possibility of a hidden physeal injury in the presence of soft tissue injury and a normal radiograph may lead to its early recognition and treatment.
