Pelvic injuries in children and especially sacroiliac anterior dislocation are uncommon lesions. In this study, we present an original technique for the fixation of such lesions by a custom-made frame through a single posterior approach. The case of a 12-year-old girl is reported here and advantages of this technique are described. At final follow-up, healing of the lesion was achieved with favourable clinical and radiological outcomes.
