Subluxation at the hip following poliomyelitis though not an uncommon phenomenon has not been well documented in the literature. Most of the writers reporting on small number of cases have claimed the unbalanced flexion-adductor pull as the causative factor for paralytic subluxation (Fair-Bank 1920, Waston-Jones 1926, Hart 1928, Singer and Rose-Innes 1963, Mercer and Duthie 1964, Sharrad 1967, 1971). Jones (1954) and Parkins (1961) on the other hand believed that, primary factor in development of patalytic dislocation is the presence of coax valga and not the muscle pull. In our study we have attempted to relate the incidence of subluxation with the residual strength of muscles acting around the hip joint and with the mode of management of patients in the Carly convalescent phase of the disease. The role of coax valga if any, in the production of subluxation of hip has also been analysed.
