Posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) avulsion fractures occurred less frequently in children than in adults. A low threshold of suspicion is required to avoid delaying or even missing the diagnosis due to the rare presentation of these cases. This report represents a rare case of a skeletally immature patient with PCL avulsion fracture from tibial attachment, which was treated surgically. Along with a case report, we also provide a review of other studies.
