Abstract Bilateral posterior fracture-dislocations of the shoulders are a rare injury that usually occurs secondary to a tonic-clonic seizure, electrocution or a high energy trauma. In this unique case, we present the first case of this injury resulting from a simple syncope in a 49 year old man with no history of epilepsy. He was fully investigated and no cause was found for his syncope. His shoulder fracture dislocations were reduced acutely and treated conservatively with full functional recovery.
