Bilateral Anterior Dislocation of the Shoulder after an Epileptic Seizure during the Sleep: A Case Report and Review of Literature
Abstract: Bilateral dislocation of the shoulder is rare and still very rare when it arises during the sleep due to an epileptic seizure. We report in this work the case of a young 24-year-old patient not known epileptic before and who never has a convulsive crisis. We discuss the mechanism of this uncommon variety of shoulder dislocation and modalities of treatment.
