van der Zeeuw, F. T., et al. (2016). "Simultaneous bilateral hip fractures following a simple fall in an elderly patient without predilecting comorbidities." J Surg Case Rep 2016(5).

Simultaneous bilateral hip fractures are rare, mostly being caused by violent forces or in patients with bone metabolism disorders. We present the case of an elderly patient who sustained simultaneous bilateral hip fractures following a simple fall without having any known predilecting comorbidities other than advanced age. Only four cases have been described of elderly patients without comorbidity with simultaneous bilateral hip fractures following low-energy traumas. This rareness potentially leads to misses of this diagnosis.
