Traumatic hip dislocation is uncommon in the paediatric population. Post reduction radiographs often show an incongruent hip because of tissue interposition. We report the case of a 12-year-old boy who was transferred to our hospital with an incongruent hip after a skiing accident, without a history of hip dislocation.
