With the widespread use of ultrasonography, diagnosis can be made easily. Developmental dysplasia of the hip (DDH) is a disease in which gynecologists and obstetricians, pediatricians, and orthopedists and traumatologists can play a joint role in the diagnosis. Nowadays, with early diagnosis, it can often be cured with conservative treatment. It is also important to keep records so that it can be detected in infancy and that medical practices performed in the future can be examined. In our article, it is aimed to examine a few of the cases that were treated for DDH and reflected in the higher judiciary, to examine complications-medical malpractice, which are situations that cause disputes on this issue, to examine the importance of medical records, to evaluate the issue from a legal perspective, and to prevent future disputes in such cases concerning health law.
