Glenohumeral dislocation in pediatric age is a rare injury. The proximal humerus fractures, on the other hand, are relatively common with the management ranging from conservative to operative fixation. Concomitant proximal humeral fracture and subluxation or dislocation of ipsilateral glenohumeral joint are the rarer events with very few reports available in the literature. We present a series of four pediatric cases (2 males and 2 females) of fracture dislocation of the shoulder with relevant details. All the cases suffered injuries following fall from tree and were managed by operative means in two while two were managed conservatively. Good functional outcome was noted in the mean follow-up of 10 months.
