This is a case report of a 30-year-old male hand digging manual borehole driller who became quadriplegic as a result of a complete cervical cord injury at the level of C5. He subsequently developed a trochanteric decubitus ulcer through which the head of the femur dislocated; a rare and unusual complication which has not been previously described in adult quadriplegics.
