Abstract

Traumatic hip dislocation in children has a relatively rare occurrence. There are some residual complications, such as avascular necrosis of the femoral head, growth disturbance caused by premature fusion, neurological injury, recurrent dislocation, and posttraumatic arthritis. There is no consensus in the literature about the period of non-weight bearing after reduction. A rare case of a 13-year-old boy of hip dislocation caused by trivial force for age is reported followed by review of the pediatric literatures with treatment recommendation.
