Open fractures in the pediatric population are rare. As such, recommendations for care based on high-level studies are scarce. Furthermore, most level I and II recommendations come from studies involving open fractures in adults. Although it is generally accepted that open pediatric fractures have better outcomes than open fractures in adults, the lack of quality studies provide ample opportunities to answer questions regarding care of these injuries. This review explores the available literature and gives corresponding recommendations based on the level of evidence.
