Various musculoskeletal injuries are well known complications of epilepsy either because of direct trauma or because of unbalanced forceful muscle contraction. We report a case of non-traumatic bilateral central acetabular fracture dislocation due to seizure activity induced by neurocysticercosis of the brain, which was managed conservatively and obtained reasonable good outcome. This case highlights the importance of proper evaluation in young non-osteoporotic patients who have experienced an epileptic attack without any previous history. It is also imperative to mention that these patients should be thoroughly examined neurologically to find out the exact etiology and should be treated accordingly to prevent future seizure activity.
