Abstract

Background: A 10-year-old boy presented with a 4-week history of limping gait and right knee pain. The patient did not have a fever. Physical examination revealed limited range of motion of the right hip. Standard laboratory inflammatory parameters were normal. Plain radiographs of the knee and hip taken in another hospital didn’t show abnormalities. Because of persistent diagnostic uncertainty, MRI of the hips was performed. Patient was treated surgically.

Keywords: Hip, abnormalities
