Chronic old unreduced anterior dislocations are extremely rare. We report a case of 75-year-old lady who was seen in policlinic with the symptoms of severe pain and limited shoulder range of motion in which radiographies revealed anteroinferior missed shoulder dislocation. Open reduction with Bankart repair was done, and patient was able to return her daily activities 6 weeks after the operation. To us, if the shoulder was found to be instable after reduction, anteroinferior glenohumeral ligament tear should be looked for, and if it exists should be repaired.
