The anterior hip dislocations are uncommon and are further categorized into pubic or iliac type. Iliac type of dislocation is less common than pubic type. These injuries are limited to a few case reports or small series in the literature. There is no consensus on the mechanism of injury and treatment strategy for this injury. We present a case of isolated left side superior iliac type of hip dislocation in a 30-year-old male patient. The case was managed by uneventful concentric reduction under anesthesia. There was no recurrence and radiological features of osteonecrosis was not noted in the follow-up of 8 months.
