Introduction: Anterior or posterior dislocation of hip are usually associated with fracture head of femur but dislocations associated with femoral neck, trochanter and shaft are very rare and among this anterior dislocation of hip with ipsilateral fracture of shaft femur is an extremely rare injury. We reported a case of anterior dislocation of hip associated with ipsilateral fracture shaft femur upper third in adult male.
Case presentation: A 25 yrs male, low socioeconomic status was brought to our emergency department was conscious but unable to mobilize his right lower limb and external rotation deformity was present with some shortening. No neurovascular compromise and was found fracture shaft femur along with anterior dislocation of right hip on x-ray and treated by close reduction of femoral head and internal fixation of fracture shaft femur by intramedullary nail.
Conclusion: Early diagnosis of hip dislocation is essential to prevent avascular necrosis of femur head in future. We concluded that there is no need of open reduction for anterior hip dislocation in every such case. Close reduction of anterior dislocation of hip followed by femur interlocking for femoral shaft fracture is good option for management for such type of injuries.
