Author(s): Syam Gangadharan Nair, Sudheesh VS, Sachin Joseph, Aswin Thankachan and Bimal A Kumar

Abstract: Traumatic dislocation of hip in paediatric population is an uncommon condition and recurrent dislocation is even rarer. Various factors are responsible for recurrent dislocation including age under 8 years, hypothyroidism, Down’s syndrome, presence of acetabular fracture with deficient posterior bony support, presence of hip dysplasia, pre-existing paralytic conditions, delayed reduction, and inadequate immobilization of the hip. Timely and emergent management is the key for achieving good long term functional outcome. Here we report a case of six-year-old male child having generalized ligamentous laxity with recurrent traumatic dislocation of left hip, two times in the past two years and his 18 months follow up result.
