Summary

Dislocations of the hip associated with fractures of the neck of femur are rare entities. We report a case of a 23 year old man involved in a road traffic crash and sustained a posterior hip dislocation of the right hip with an associated fracture of the neck of femur. This is a rare case but may occur in high energy injuries. He was managed by bipolar hemiarthroplasty as opposed to total hip athroplasty due to financial constrains. This case highlights the challenge of treatment of posterior hip dislocation in the setting of associated femoral neck fracture, late presentation and resource constraint.
