Valgus slip of the capital femoral epiphysis is a known but extremely rare form of a slipped capital femoral epiphysis. After the first report in 1926 up to the present, approximately 44 cases have been reported. We report two cases of valgus slip of the capital femoral epiphysis with a comprehensive review of the existing literature and the precautions that are needed while planning surgical management of these patients. Awareness of this condition is essential to make a prompt diagnosis and plan the appropriate management.
