Introduction: Isolated traumatic posterior hip dislocation is seen as an extremely rare incident
during sport activities. In this case report we aimed to present an isolated traumatic posterior
hip dislocation of an amateur tennis player. Case Report: A 26 years old female patient who was
injured during playing tennis was brought to our orthopaedic emergency unit and diagnosed with
pure posterior hip dislocation. Her hip was immediately reduced under sedation which then a
rehabilitation programme was begun. Conclusion: Amateur people generally play tennis on cement
floor which can be slippery. To prevent these kind of extreme injuries non slippery shoes and shock
absorbable realtively soft surfaces to play must be preffered by the players.
