Congenital dislocation of the hip (CDH) is usually diagnosed in the newborn, however, a small number of cases develop later on between six to twelve months of age. Infants should have their hips assessed periodically throughout the first year of life in order to avoid the complications of late onset CDH. Early management of CDH is effective and minimizes the likelihood of disability in later life.
