Abstract

Limping, due to trauma, is common in all age groups, but this dissertation deals with limping in infants to about 3 years of age. The reason for this age cut-off is that, often, it is difficult to obtain an accurate history from these patients, and thus, imaging becomes of paramount importance. This being said, it is important that the individual evaluating the images knows what to look for and what it looks like.
