Description Abdominal injuries in childhood are among serious and, not uncommonly, life-threatening conditions. They are often a part of polytrauma and associated injuries in which trauma to abdominal organs may be overlooked. In childhood, blunt abdominal injuries significantly prevail over open injuries. The present case reports demonstrate cases that are less common, whether in terms of the etiology of injury, diagnosis or treatment and consequences.
