Özet

Introduction: Trochanter minor fractures are generally seen between the ages of 13 and 17 years due to sports injuries, while the physis line is open. They are less frequently seen in adults than in adolescents. In this study, an old patient is presented who was admitted to the emergency department twice in one day because of hip pain, and a trochanter minor fracture was detected.
