Skating on wheels-in-line skates (roller blading) is an increasingly popular activity. We present two cases of temporal bone fractures from roller blading falls, and review the literature on temporal bone fractures resulting from recreational activities. Since trauma from roller blading may result in significant morbidity, the use of helmets is strongly recommended.
