Cystic Fibrosis has effects on many body systems, including the skeletal system. In this case, we describe the impact of respiratory and endocrine disease on bone healing following orthopedic trauma in a 22-year-old woman. Limitations to mobility resulting from trauma complicated her respiratory condition. Disease-related effects on bone health and healing delayed her recovery from the trauma. It is important to recognize the multisystemic nature of CF, even when managing acute orthopedic injuries.
