Abstract

Traumatic hip dislocation occurs relatively rarely in children less than 5 years of age. Although the prognosis is better in this age group than in adults, hip dislocation is still considered an orthopedic emergency, and reduction should be done as soon as possible. Awareness of the presenting symptoms, including referred pain and knee complaints, is important to prevent delayed diagnosis and to facilitate prompt reduction.
