Abstract

The authors report a rare case of transverse fracture of the second sacral vertebra that was isolated, with neurologic deficit, and treated conservatively by reduction opposing the trauma mechanism, and immobilization in plaster. After 22 months there was good neurologic recovery, although some perineal sensory disorders persisted, as did sexual deficit. This method is believed to be a valid one as an alternative to surgery, which is difficult, and not without complications.
