Abstract

Hip dislocation occurs when the femur does not break and the force is transmitted towards the hip joint leading to a posterior dislocation of the femoral head with or without posterior acetabular fracture. We present the case of a 26 year old patient involved in motor vehicle accident. Clinical and imaging (radiography, CT) examination revealed an intertrochanteric fracture associated with ipsilateral posterior hip dislocation and posterior acetabular wall fracture simultaneously with epsilateraal tibial and fibular fractures. Such associations is very rare and can be explained by an extremely powerful force generated the three lesions simultaneously. This case is important not only because of its extreme rarity but also because of treatment method.
