Eight patients with 9 calcaneal fractures were reviewed. Of the fractures 6 were intra-articular and 3 extra-articular, but in children this distinction appears to have little relevance to treatment or prognosis. While these fractures are relatively uncommon in children, clinical suspicion is important in making the diagnosis, since the presentation may be subtle. The overall prognosis in children is excellent.
