Abstract

Ischiofemoral impingement is a rare cause of hip pain related to narrowing of the space between the ischial tuberosity and the lesser trochanter. It is usually seen in middle-aged women. We report a rare case of a young male patient presenting with ischiofemoral impingement due to a solitary exostosis at the lesser trochanter. Imaging, especially Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), is an excellent tool to confirm the diagnosis by demonstrating narrowing of the ischiofemoral space and soft tissue edema in the muscle belly of the quadratus femoris muscle.
