Objectives: Pediatric femoral neck fractures were reviewed to compare complications with the time of presentation. Methods: 34 pediatric femoral neck fractures were studied to detect union time, avascular necrosis, premature physis fusion, and the neck-shaft angle. All complications were comparable between both groups. Results: The mean union time was more in late presented group. Four children developed AVN. The neck shaft angle and pre mature fusion of growth plate were same in both groups. Conclusions: The frequency of the complications except union time in pediatric neck femur fracture is comparable in early and late presented groups.
