Open anterior fracture dislocation of the hip: a case report and review of literature

Abstract

Open anterior fracture dislocation of the hip is an extremely rare injury and is the result of a violent trauma. Such a case is being reported in a 15-year-old female, who also had other adjacent bony injuries. In spite of early treatment, necrosis and infection could not be controlled, resulting in permanent disability in this young girl.
