The treatment of tabetic arthropathy of the hip by prosthetic replacement has been recorded in the literature in 5 cases, of which only 4 were followed up. The authors present 4 more cases in which follow-up showed that the operation was definitely contraindicated in this condition. All the cases developed recurrent subluxation and/or loosening of the prosthesis.
