ABSTRACT
An eight-year-old boy had a sequestrum involving the entire femoral diaphysis removed before significant involucrum had formed. This procedure resulted in a large structural defect. Ten weeks later, the periosteum had completely repaired the effect, and no infection remained. The benefit in this case of early, radical sequestrectomy is discussed.
