Managing acute trauma cases in military and low-resource environments usually requires adapted medicosurgical protocols to achieve best medical results with limited technical capacity. We report a case of unstable pelvic fracture that needed ultrasonographic assessment for closed reduction before external stabilization. In our opinion, ultrasonographic control should be considered as a useful technique for unstable pelvic fracture reduction and an alternative to radiographic control.
