Proximal tibial physeal injuries with neurovascular injuries are rare. Here, we report the case of a 12-year-old boy with a rare fracture pattern that is segmental tibia fracture with physeal and diaphyseal fracture with popliteal artery and common peroneal nerve injury, which has never been reported earlier to the best of our knowledge. We also discuss the possible mechanism of injury and also describe the surgical decision-making and highlight the importance of prompt identification and early management of such patients for a good clinical outcome.
