Abstract
Fractures can occur during violent muscular violence such as occur in the course of epileptic seizures, though this is rare (0.3%). The proximal part of the humerus is most frequently affected. The typical lesion is bilateral posterior dislocation or fracture-dislocation. We present a rare case of bilateral anterior fracture-dislocation of the shoulder sustained as the result of an epileptic fit. The treatment given was open reduction, refixation of the anterior labrum and screw fixation of the fragments. A review of the literature revealed only 18 cases of bilateral anterior dislocations caused by convulsive seizures.
