Fracture separation of the capital femoral epiphysis occurring during attempted closed reduction of a traumatic dislocation of the hip is described in two adolescents. Although this complication is extremely rare, the prognosis of fracture separation with dislocation of the epiphysis is known to be poor. Avascular necrosis subsequently developed in both cases. The importance of gentle manipulative reduction under general anaesthesia with complete muscle relaxation is emphasised.
