 Background:Acrylic femoral head prosthesis was first reported in 1950 by the Judet brothers.

 Case:The patient was a 78-year-old woman who at 23 years of age had undergone artificial femoral head replacement with an acrylic resin prosthesis by a local surgeon as a treatment for tuberculosis of the hip.

 Result:At surgery the implant was found not to have bound to the bones and was easy to remove. We performed revision hip arthroplasty with a KT plate, allogeneic bone, and a cement stem.

 Conclusion:We have reported the case of a 78-year old woman who underwent revision hip arthroplasty 55 years after acrylic femoral head prosthesis. It is important to be aware of the possible presence of an acrylic femoral head prostheses.
