Abstract

This report is a case of slipped capital femoral epiphysis in a nonambulatory patient with spastic quadriplegic type of cerebral palsy. Such a case is unusual as no weight-bearing forces were acting on the hip; however, spasticity may have played a role. To the best of our knowledge no earlier cases have been reported in the literature.
