Slipped capital femoral epiphysis (SCFE) is the most common hip disorder affecting the adolescent population, usually between 10 and 15 years old, with some multifactorial etiologies may include obesity, trauma, and some endocrinal causes. We reported a 10-year-old boy who presented with unilateral SCFE following intertrochanteric fracture, which was fixed by dynamic compression plate 1 year before the SCFE. The SCFE fixed by a 6.5 mm cannulated screw. In the 1-year postoperative follow-up, the patient achieved the union and the physis did not displace. The patient had not any pain and his gait and function were normal in both sides.
