Özet

There have only been a few reports of bilateral hip fractures resulting from hypocalcaemic convulsions. We report a case of simultaneous bilateral fractures of the femoral neck and superior pubic ramus caused by convulsions secondary to renal failure-induced hypocalcaemia. To our knowledge, such an occurrence has not previously been described.
