Abstract

Anterior dislocation of the hip joint is rare, accompanied usually by a fracture of adjacent bony structures. A case of isolated anterior inguinal dislocation of the hip joint is hereby presented with 22 months of followup. The mechanism of this rare injury is usually forcible abduction and extension of the hip joint. Early diagnosis and reduction, with immediate post-reduction roentgenograms to discover any fragments in the joint space, should be done. In this patient, X-rays 11 and 22 months after reduction appeared normal.
