【Background】The epidemiology of fractures in children is not reported over the past １０ years in Japan. We investigated the epidemiology of pediatric fractures in our hospital over the past １０ years.
【Method】A retrospective analysis of fractures in children（０ to １５ years-old）between April 1, ２００９, and March３１,２０１９was undertaken. We excluded cranial and/or facial bone fractures.
【Results】We enrolled２６１children and２９７fractures. Mean age was８．９year-old, and７０．８％ was boys. The highest cause of fractures is sports（２９．５％,７７／２６１children）, especially contact sports. Referred children were５８．２％（１５２／２６１children）and operated children were ８９％（２３３／２６１ children）.
【Conclusion】Enlightment activities about fractures in sports and aggregation of children who needs a operation may be important.
