Objectives: To describe the sports-related injuries observed in young athletes that participated in the 2018 Youth Olympic Games in Buenos Aires.

Results: There were 4012 athletes that participated in the 2018 Youth Olympic Games in Buenos Aires, and, surprisingly, the number of male and female athletes was exactly the same. Injuries in female athletes were the most common (63.15%), most of them occurring in athletes of South American origin (31.57%). Athletics was the sport practiced by most patients (7 studies). Soft tissue injuries were most common in female athletes and mostly involved the lower limb (51.51%).
