The article reports on the clinical study which presented a nine-year old girl with cerebral palsy with painful flank and gross hematuria following a fall against a chest of drawers. A computed tomography (CT) scan indicated a deep parenchemal fracture extending to the left kidney and pelvis. It notes that the case supports the management of a renal blunt injury in children.
