ND54/T12 Fracture of leg, level unspecified



Fracture of the leg can be caused by a traumatic event, such as a fall or an automobile accident.


The diagnosis of a fracture of the leg is usually made based on the patient’s history and physical exam. Imaging studies, such as X-rays or CT scans, may be necessary to confirm the diagnosis.

Differential diagnosis

Differential diagnoses include soft tissue injuries (such as ligament sprains or muscle strains), bone tumors, or other bone diseases.


Treatment often involves immobilizing the affected leg with a cast or brace, and physical therapy to help improve range of motion and strength. Surgery may be necessary in some cases.


The prognosis for a fracture of the leg is generally good, with the patient typically making a full recovery.
