We report a case of a subcapital fracture that occurred after reduction and fixation of an intertrochanteric fracture of the hip with a sliding screw. The subcapital fracture occurred 4 months after surgery for the intertrochanteric hip fracture. The subcapital fracture was undisplaced and occurred in an area supported by the screw without damaging the implant. This patient was treated conservatively with bedrest.
