Tramadol is a synthetic analgesic used for the treatment of moderate to severe pain with a dual mechanism of action. Although Tramadol-induced seizures are reported in the literature, however, the incidence is rare with its use in therapeutic dosage. Bilateral symmetrical anterior dislocation following a seizure is an unusual complication. We present a rare case of bilateral symmetrical anterior shoulder dislocation following Tramadol-induced epileptiform reaction in an otherwise healthy adult male. The dislocations were diagnosed early and reduced immediately with a satisfactory outcome. An awareness of this entity and a high index of suspicion are required to make an early diagnosis and offer prompt treatment in order to avoid unpleasant complications.
