Abstract: We report a case of a 55 year old male with closed double segmental fracture of both bones of left leg in a road traffic accident. Patient was treated by expert nailing. Segmental tibial fractures are uncommon and double segmental fractures/ trifocal fractures are rarely seen. Literature search revealed that only four cases reported and ours is the fifth among all and first closed double segmental tibial fracture treated with expert nailing. Nail remains effective treatment modality of such fractures.
