Talus fracture in pediatric age is very rare due to the higher elasticity of skeletally immature bone in comparison to the adult bone. The usual mechanism of these types of fractures is a fall from height with the foot in dorsiflexion position. We are presenting a case report for a pediatric patient with comminuted talar body and talar neck fracture which was treated nonsurgically with cast immobilization and his outcome in 2 years follow-up.
