Abstract

A traumatic sternal segment dislocation in children is very rare. Of the few cases reported, some recommended surgical treatment, while others reported good results by conservative treatment. Therefore, the treatment remains unclear. This paper reports a case of completely remodeled traumatic sternal segment dislocation in a 13-year-old boy treated by the restriction of activity and periodic observations.
