Traumatic dislocation of the knee is both a rare and severe injury. Knee dislocations are classified by the direction of the tibial displacement with respect to the femur as anterior, posterior, medial, lateral, and rotary, with anterior dislocation being the commonest. Knee dislocations are associated with multiple ligamentous injury and neurovascular compromise and hence warrant emergency reduction of dislocated knee. Neglected knee dislocations are not commonly seen. The few reported cases of neglected knee dislocations are posterior. We present hitherto an unreported case of neglected anterior dislocation of the knee with common peroneal palsy.
