Background: Bilateral scapular fractures are infrequent due to the presence of substantial muscle bulk, and their association with vertebral body fractures adds to their rarity. The occurrence of bilateral scapular fractures aligned with vertebral body fractures is exceedingly uncommon. Case Report: In this report, we present the case of a teenager involved in a motor vehicle accident (MVA), who was admitted to our center with polytrauma. This included bilateral scapular fractures and a D5 vertebral body fracture, with an ASIA Grade E neurological status. The patient underwent diagnosis and spinal fusion surgery using posterior spinal reconstruction fixation (PSRF). The patient's recovery proceeded smoothly without complications. Conclusion: This case underscores the importance of thorough evaluation for associated injuries in patients with high-velocity impact trauma. A comprehensive approach to patient care, including holistic treatment, is essential for optimal outcomes.
