We report a 71 year-old patient with intertrochanteric fracture who had been managed with DHS and her healed fracture complicated by a subcapital femoral neck fracture.

A subcapital femoral neck fracture complicating a healed intertrochanteric fracture is rare but catastrophic event. Such cases are managed in a hetereogenous manner, i.e. there exists a mixture of cases treated by either fixed angle devices or dynamic compression hip screws (DHS). We report on a patient who developed subcapital femoral neck fractures after open reduction and internal fixation of an intertrochanteric hip fracture with a dynamic hip screw. We found 5 cases in literature with similar complication.
