High-energy fractures with bone loss are a true challenge for orthopedic surgeons, requiring complex reconstruction techniques and the use of bone grafts. Despite basic science advances, knowledge about the process of human bone allograft integration is limited. The aim of this case report is to document the remodel and integration process of a cortical bone allograft, until indistinguishable from the bone host in a pediatric patient with case follow-up for 8 years.

Evidence level: IV.
