Acetabular fractures after seizures are uncommon, and fewer than 30 cases are described in the literature. We present a patient with bilateral acetabular fractures after a seizure, with bilateral quadrilateral plate destruction and protrusio deformity. The patient underwent delayed staggered bilateral total hip arthroplasty 3 months after initial injury, with use of the femoral head as autograft for the protrusio deformities.
