Different mechanisms of injury and forces are typically required for anterior and posterior hip dislocations. We present the case of a patient who sustained an injury that initially resulted in an anterior hip dislocation. After reduction and without experiencing further significant trauma, the patient dislocated posteriorly while being transferred from a stretcher to a table in radiology some 14 hours later. To our knowledge, there have been no such presentations in the literature. © 2008 Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, Inc.
