There are three main etiologies described in the literature. Given that it presents with relatively uncharacteristic symptoms, in many cases it is diagnosed late. We present the case of a man who was admitted with bilateral posterior fracture dislocation of the shoulders following a seizure. Investigations revealed severe vitamin D deficiency as the principal contributory factor to his injury. This is an important association because failure to recognize and treat this can result in significant morbidity in susceptible groups.Keywords: bilateral fracture, dislocation, shoulder, vitamin D deficienc
