Bilateral dislocations of the shoulders are uncommon. Of the cases which do present, the majority are posterior and occur secondary to seizures associated with epilepsy, electrocution and hypoglycaemia. Bilateral anterior dislocations are thought to be very rare. This report describes such a case which occurred following minor trauma in an elderly lady. The literature review which follows would seem to suggest that this may not be as rare as previously thought.
