We present a rare case of a newborn having congenital knee dislocation (CDK) with ipsilateral developmental dysplasia of hip (DDH). This case report shows how abnormal intrauterine pressure leads to dislocation of various joints in utero. We managed this conservatively with Pavlik Harness for DDH and serial corrective casting with manipulation for CDK with a satisfactory result after follow-up of 6 months.
