Abstract: Early diagnosis and threatment of congenital hip dislocation ( at the maximum age of three years ) assures a satisfying further development of the hip, without complications that could affect the patient's social life. Using hip ultrasound to trace the hips that present risks in the last few years has reduced the number of patients with congenital hip dislocation discovered at ages over two and has made possible the early orthopaedic or surgical threatment. In spite of all this there are also congenital hip dislocation cases diagnosed at ages of over three years. In the following we will present a clinical case of congenital bilateral hip dislocation diagnosed at a four years old girl, the surgical threatment and the clinical and radiological postoperatory evolution.
Keywords: congenital bilateral hip dislocation; old ages diagnosis ( four years and five months), surgical threatment; pelvic osteotomy
