Anterior glenohumeral dislocation is the most common lesion of dislocations that appears in emergency department. Bilateral anterior shoulder dislocation is a rare injury and in majority of cases originates from trauma. We review two cases (a male, 70 years old and a female, 68 years old) with a simultaneous bilateral anterior dislocation of the shoulder after an epileptic seizure during daily activities. Dislocations were diagnosed after detailed clinical and imaging examination. Under general anesthesia closed reduction with Kocher technique was applied in both patients. A percentage more than 10% of the bilateral anterior dislocation may missed out in the first diagnosis which leads to serious morbidity and loss of function in patients. The aim of this study is to describe two rare cases with simultaneous bilateral anterior glenohumeral dislocation.
