Repeat Exam Now: 2 yr old "limping x 4 d". Persistent limp at this age can result from trauma, inflammation, infection. Diagnosis is challenging, misdiagnosis can have serious consequences. It is unclear if x-ray/labs done. Toddler fractures commonly are without initial x-ray findings, early bone infections can be occult, hip should be examined also. See doctor for follow-up exam now to ensure correct diagnosis.
