Atraumatic acetabular fracture after generalized seizure during hemodialysis: A case report

Author(s): Dr. Sreejith GS, Dr. Bobby Jacob and Dr. Akhil Ajith
Abstract: Fracture is a less common complication in seizure patients, and fractures as a consequence of convulsive seizures without direct trauma occur in 0.3% of seizure cases. Acetabular fractures after convulsions are even rarer, and only a few cases of acetabular fractures dislocations, purely caused by convulsive activity, have been reported. Therefore, we report a case of unilateral acetabular fracture after a seizure episode, with relevant literature review.
