Traumatic hip dislocation in children is an uncommon injury and constitutes an orthopedic emergency. We herein present a traumatic posterior dislocation of the hip in a 4-year-old child and emphasize on the role of early correction of the injury, preferably within 6 h since its occurrence to prevent long-term complications such as osteonecrosis, coxa magna, and osteoarthritis.
