Abstract: Congenital dislocation of the hip is a part of a large spectrum of disorders of the hip’s development that can appear
in different forms at different ages ( DDH – development dysplasis of the hip ). Dislocation is defined as a complete
displacement of a joint with no contact between the acetabulum and femural head. Other entities are subluxation
defined as displacement of a joint with the same contact between the articular surfaces and dysplazia refers at
the different development of the acetabulum. The factors that predispoze to DDH are ligamentors laxity, prenatal
positioning, postnatal positioning, racial predilection, hormonal and genetic elements. Congenital dislocation of
the hip may be associated with other anomalies: torticollis, metatarsus adductus, tallus valgus, oligohydramnios.
Paraclinic investigation includes radiography, MRI and ultrasounds, each one with a positive diagnosis.
