Traumatic dislocation of hip in children is a relatively rare injury. Mason (1954) reviewing the literature found 88 cases of traumatic dislocation of hip in childhood reported in the period from 1922 to 1954. In developed countries neglected and unreduced hip dislocations presenting weeks or months after the injury are rarely seen and are usually as a result of missing the diagnosis due to associated severe skeletal injuries. However, they can often be seen in developing countries where patients are brought may days later, after reported manipulations and message. Gupta and Chaturvedi (1970) reported 32 cases of traumatic dislocation of hip in children in their 10 years series, out of which 12 cases were brought to hospital after 7 days and one after three and half months.
