Traumatic dislocations in children are rare and hence are considered as an orthopaedic emergency. Most of the times, the nature of the injury is insignificant. Also, the trivial mechanism of damage leads to an increased potential for missing the diagnosis. So high index of suspicion is needed, as is clinical assessment and detailed imaging are vital in obtaining the correct diagnosis. The most commonly encountered and most catastrophic complication is Avascular Necrosis (AVN) of the femoral head; early concentric reduction is crucial in minimising this risk and optimising patient outcomes. Hip dislocations are primarily due to low-velocity energy; hence we take up this hip dislocation in a nine-year-old.
