Abstract: Developmental dysplasia of the hip (DDH) is the most common musculoskeletal disorder in infancy and varies in severity, ranging from neonatal hip instability with or without associated acetabular dysplasia to irreducible dislocation. Although the disease is described by Hippocrates, there is no standard protocol for diagnosis and treatment unanimously accepted. There are still unsolved issues across the etiology, diagnosis method, the time of imaging screening and initiation of treatment. Considering the severity of the malformation, the current trend is to diagnose and treat early DDH.
In our country, infants are referred to the orthopaedic pediatric service for DDH diagnosis by family physicians or pediatricians, late enough, after 4 months age.
