Pain in the shoulders following seizure episodes should raise suspicion of a shoulder dislocation. As these injuries can be missed very easily in an unconscious patient, thorough clinical examination is of paramount importance in such cases. This is a case report of a 26-year-old female patient diagnosed as a case of bilateral anterior shoulder dislocation secondary to seizures as a complication of eclampsia. Patient was managed by closed reduction under anesthesia and reduction was performed successfully. A case report is mentioned in the literature about unilateral shoulder dislocation following seizures in eclampsia but to the best of our knowledge, no such case is mentioned about bilateral shoulder dislocation.
