Combined fracture neck femur with anterior dislocation of the head of femur is a very rare and with little resources available in the literature. We hereby report a case condition treated by unipolar arthroplasty with Austin Moore prosthesis with 6-month follow-up showing good radiological and functional outcome. Functional evaluation at the end of follow-up was assessed according to Merle d’Aubigné score modified by Matta JM, which takes into account of the presence of pain, ability to walk, and joint range of motion. The measured functional score was 15 points out of a maximum of 18, signifying a good post-operative result.
Keywords: Anterior hip dislocation, Avascular necrosis.
