Epilepsy is a pathological condition characterized by seizures of muscle tension and convulsions in which the patient is unable to control himself, resulting in various complications and injuries. In this paper we talk about a rare case that combines a shoulder dislocation with a fracture of the surgical neck of the humerus after an epileptic seizure. The patient came to the hospital with clinical symptoms directed at dislocating the shoulder after an epileptic seizure, but careful examination and radiography revealed the presence of a fracture of the surgical neck of the humerus, so the management needed experience to repair two serious traumatic injuries. In the light of the foregoing, the need for clinical knowledge regarding such injuries in terms of diagnosis and methods of management and treatment is very necessary especially that neglect or wrong diagnosis will lead to very bad results, the most important of which are chronic pain, disability and stiffness.
