Fragment fracture of the femoral head is a rare occurrence. The authors report two cases, in both of which there was dislocation of the hip, that was reduced non-surgically without at the same time obtaining reduction of the fractured fragment. In the first case the fragment was removed surgically while in the second case it was treated non-surgically as the cephalic lesion was unknown. At clinical-radiographic follow-up 2 years later, there was good functional recovery with no pain in the first patient, while early arthrosis developed in the second patient requiring prosthetic replacement surgery.
