With an increase in involvement in sports activities by children and adolescents, there has been a concomitant increase in both acute and overuse injuries. The pediatric skeleton lends itself to injuries unique to the young athlete, including various apophysites and osteochondroses. It is important for primary care and sports physicians treating the athlete to be aware of normal and abnormal variations in the pediatric skeleton, as well as common sites of injury in the pediatric foot.
