The case was about a 6-year-old male who had an open fracture on his right lower leg, which he incurred while crossing the street and was accidentally, bumped by a jeepney. He was brought on a stretcher accompanied by relatives on POC referred by Ospital ng San Jose Del Monte for debridement and for an external fixator. Admitted on Aug 7, 2007. A fracture is a break in the continuity of bone. It is defined according to type and extent. Fractures occur when the bone is subjected to stress greater that it can absorb. A direct blow, crushing force, sudden twisting motion, or even extreme muscle contraction can cause fractures. Bones can fracture as a result of direct trauma or indirect trauma. Direct trauma consists of direct force applied to the bone; direct mechanisms include tapping fractures (eg, bumper injury), penetrating fractures (eg, gunshot wound), and crush fractures. Indirect trauma involves forces acting at a distance from the fracture site. Indirect mechanisms include tension
