Congenital short femur is a rare and complex deformity that is often associated with other anomalies. There are few reports of either hip or knee dislocations during femoral lengthening in congenital short femur predisposed by associated anomaly. However, there are probably no case reports of both hip and knee joint dislocation occurring in same case during femoral lengthening in congenital short femur. We have this case of congenital short femur, where both hip and knee dislocation occurs during femoral lengthening. We reviewed different article to understand the cause and avoid such unwanted complications in future.
