A baby girl with developmental dislocation of the hip (DDH) who was treated previously with closed reduction, spica cast, and Pavlik harness had an obturator dislocation. Hyperflexion of the hip was evident during Pavlik harness treatment, but extreme laxity is considered the main factor in the complication.
