Congenital Dislocation of Hip (CDH), is one of the most common congenital diseases in the orthopedic field. It is also known as Developmental Dysplasia of Hip.  The condition can be diagnosed by clinical, ultrasonographic and radiological examination. Here we are reporting two days old male baby with congenital dislocation of right hip joint. The goal of treatment is to obtain a reduction to provide an optimal environment for femoral head and acetabular development.  Early diagnosis is the most crucial aspect of the treatment of children with congenital dislocation of hip. If dislocation remains undiagnosed or neglected, the secondary pathological changes take place. Education of primary care colleagues, in making the diagnosis and prompt referral for management is recommended.
KEYWORDS: Dislocation, Hip, Congenital, Treatment.
