Open Access Biomedical Publisher Using Post Publication Peer Review
An interesting case report with a very good attempt to explain the mechnism behind this injury.
I would suggest adding the camel into the title to increase its appeal.
To add to the discussion I think it is worth discussing camel injuries in general. A brief PubMed search ("Camel injuries") reveals a lot of articles. It appears that camels are dangerous animals but when looking at these reports it appears that the injuries are most often bite wounds to the upper body / head and neck. Other injuries are described from car vs camel RTA's or falling off camels - especially child camel jockies. There was no obvious report of kick injuries being so severe. A paragraph on the subject will put this report in the context of other camel associated injuries and emphasise the rarity of the case.
The radiograph is a little faint but the scan images are of high quality and illustrate the injury nicely.
I have worked for several years in trauma and orthopaedics
