Trochanter minor fractures are generally seen in individuals aged 12 to 16 years, commonly associated with sports such as martial arts or self-defense techniques, while the growth plate is still open. The management of trochanter minor fractures in adolescents typically involves conservative methods including early quadriceps and hip exercises; surgery is reserved for a small number of cases. This case report discusses the management of a young patient who sustained a trochanter minor fracture following a scooter accident. The fracture was successfully treated using conservative measures during follow-up.

Keywords: Avulsion fracture, ischiofemoral impingement syndrome, ludhoff sign, trochanter minor.
