62 years old man with hypertension, diabetes mellitus and renal failure had a multidrugresistant skin infection with displaced distal tibia fracture. Conservative treatment was considered due to the infection. Although the infection resolved two weeks after treatment with antibiotics, surgical treatment has not been applied. Reflex sympathetic dystrophy and pseudoarthrosis has occurred on 5th months of the fracture. We think that the operation should have been done as soon as the infection resolved.

Keywords: Fracture, pseudoarthrosis, tibia.
