Shoulders are the most common major joint to become disarticulated, and shoulder dislocation is a frequent patient presentation to the ED. Bilateral shoulder dislocations, however, are rare and typically caused by seizure activity or electrocution. Posterior disarticulation is most common following seizure activity. This article describes an adolescent girl who dislocated both shoulders anteriorly following seizure activity.
