Abstract

• Inferior shoulder dislocations are rare and usually present with the affected arm locked overhead. • They may present atypically mimicking anterior shoulder dislocations, leading to the use of improper reduction techniques. • When evaluating shoulder dislocations, it is important to identify concomitant osseous and neurological injuries. • Inferior dislocations can be reduced under general anesthesia if initial reduction attempts in the ER are unsuccessful.
