Traumatic hip dislocations are rare injuries in the paediatric population, requiring urgent reduction to reduce the risk of avascular necrosis but it is common to see in a developing world patients presenting to hospital after months of time after visiting and having massage in a traditional healers. Here I present a 10year old female patient presented to our hospital 86days after sustaining fall down accident from a 4 meter tree. She had been to traditional healer where she has massage but didn’t improve. After arrival to our hospital patient managed by open reduction followed by three weeks skin traction and another three weeks non-weight bearing movement.
