Abstract

The unilateral glenohumeral dislocation is the most commonly encountered dislocation in our practices but the simultaneous bilateral dislocation is very rarely seen entity. It almost always occurs posteriorly. While simultaneous bilateral anterior dislocations present even very rare. We report a case of 70-years-old male who visited to our emergency complex due to trauma after he fell into the bathroom in a drunk state. Patient complains of pain and deformity of both glenohumeral joints. Clinical and radiological findings revealed bilateral anterior glenohumeral joint dislocation. Close reduction under general anaesthesia was done and both shoulders were immobilized using shoulder immobilizer.
