ABSTRACT
We report a case of early stress fracture of the pelvic ring following an extension of a multilevel instrumented lumbosacral fusion in an osteopenic female. Surgeons should be aware of possibilities of pelvic complications in osteopenic patients with lumbosacral arthrodesis and should take care when harvesting iliac bone graft.
Key Words: Early stress fracture; Pelvic ring; Long instrumented fusion; Adult deformity
