Though uncommon, fracture of neck of femur in children is a devastating injury due to the complications it may cause. Treatment depends on the age of the child, the displacement of the fracture and the type of fracture based on Delbet classification. Surgical treatment is indicated in displaced fractures. We report a case of an impacted fracture of neck of femur in a 12-year-old girl. The girl was managed non-operatively. The fracture united uneventfully. An impacted fracture of neck of femur is common in the adult population. To the best of our knowledge, this fracture pattern has not been reported in the paediatric age group.
