Neglected traumatic posterior knee dislocations were rare in orthopaedic literature more so after a surgical intervention. Majority of the injuries are associated with vascular trauma and distal or proximal fractures and complete disruption of anterior and posterior cruciate ligaments and nerve traction injuries. Traumatic knee dislocations are therefore treated as an orthopaedic emergency. There were no definitive guide lines to open reduction as well as conservative methods of treatment. The end results of functional recovery are still controversial with residual posterior subluxation. Here we present a case of neglected posterior knee dislocation treated with closed manipulation and uni planar external fixator.
