Introduction: The fracture of the tibial spine is a bone avulsion of the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) in its fixation in the intercondylar eminence of the tibia. Most commonly affecting children between 8 and 14 years old immature skeletal, tibial spine fractures are often considered as the pediatric equivalent to mid-life adult ACL lesions. Aim: To report a case of fracture and avulsion of the tibial spine treated with the use of a compression screw (Hebert screw) through an open anterior approach. Method: This is the retrospective report of a case attended at the Orthopedics and Traumatology Service of HUSF, located at Bragança Paulista, SP, Brazil. The data for preparation of this paper were obtained based on the patient's chart. Result: A fixation with compression screw through the open anterior approach was chosen. Conclusion: The patient presented improvement of flexion and extension after the intervention.
