Abstract: Prior pure hip dislocation in its obturator variety is exceptional. It still reflects a high-energy trauma and may compromise the functional prognosis of the hip secondary necrosis of the femoral head. It is reported the case of a patient who, following an accident on the highway, presented a pure anterior obturator hip dislocation. The dislocation was reduced under general anaesthesia in an emergency. Post-reduction, the hip was stable, joint discharge was recommended for 6 weeks and then rehabilitation. After falling two years we did not notice any signs of necrosis of the femoral head and there is no functional impairment.
