Bilateral fractures of the femoral neck are rare and are usually associated with underlying bone diseases, previous metabolic diseases, high-energy trauma, electroshock, or seizure attack. Low-energy trauma, such as a fall, related bilateral fractures of the femoral neck are rare. We report a case of a 74-year-old woman with displaced bilateral femoral neck fractures following a fall. After admission, we performed bilateral cemented bipolar hemiarthroplasty and restored functional outcome postoperatively. Osteoporosis was confirmed by X-ray bone densitometry at the postoperative outpatient department follow-up.
