Introduction: Bilateral hip dislocation (especially asymmetric type) occurs rarely. By review of literature (published since 1951 till 2004), we found 15 cases of bilateral asymmetric hip dislocation (age between 3 and 36 years) that contained 12 cases in males.  All of the patients were treated using closed reduction and then traction. There was no considerable difference between the results of treatment in these patients and unilateral hip dislocations.

Case Report: The case was a 39 years old man who had bilateral hip dislocation in a head on automobile collision while standing at the back of a van. The position of left hip was in adduction, flexion and internal rotation and the position of right hip was in abduction, flexion and external rotation. Closed reduction was conducted, first for left hip and then for right hip using traction and counter-traction. Then skeletal traction was applied for 8 weeks. The patient started PWB during 4 weeks after the end of traction, then FWB.

Conclusion: After 6 months, control radiography did not show any sign of AVN or other lesion and patient’s walking was painless.
