Abstract

Posterior fracture-dislocation of the hip is a rare injury in sports and is most frequently seen after road traffic accidents. A posterior fracture-dislocation of the hip that occurred in an adult sportsman during rugby is reported. This case illustrates the great forces that can be sustained by the hip joint of rugby players. Operative stabilization led to a stable hip joint allowing early mobilization. Following rehabilitation, the patient returned to light sporting activities after 9 months.
