We present our findings in 175 consecutive infants and children with tibial fractures to demonstrate which of these fractures are most likely to occur at certain sites in the tibia, and in which age groups. We also demonstrate the most subtle findings seen with each of these fractures and comment on a newly encountered toddler's fracture involving the upper tibia. Our objective is to alert the imager to reexamine key places in the tibia when no obvious fracture is seen on initial inspection.
