Clinical case:The article presents a clinical observation of a one month old male infant who admitted on account of trauma of the leftlowerlimb,an x-ray revealed a fracture on congenital short femur type 1. Discussion: Short congenital femur is the most common growth deficiency of the femur, with five types: type 1: simple hypoplasia of the femur type 2: short femur with angulation type 3: short femur with coxa vara type 4: deficiency of the proximal end of the femur type 5: aplasia of the femur, a short congenital femur may be unrecognized and only diagnosed at walking age, or as in our case discovered in the context of a fracture, according to the literature no case of short congenital femur discovered in the context of a fracture in children has been found.
