The neck of femur fractures in elderly patients with hip resurfacing in situ have rarely reported injuries. We report a case of intertrochanteric fracture in a 62-year-old man with ipsilateral Birmingham Hip Resurfacing (BHR) arthroplasty, successfully treated with internal fixation using a proximal femoral nail. There were no intraoperative or postoperative complications and the patient returned to his normal level of activities within 6 months after the fixation. In conclusion, we have demonstrated that fixation with proximal femoral nails can be an alternative safer option in the treatment of these complex injuries.
