In this situation, operative management is sometimes required to either ensure appropriate coverage of the femoral head by the acetabulum, or to replace the femoral head in adult life. As the disease progresses, fragmentation and destruction of the femoral head occurs. Additionally, tongues of cartilage sometimes extend inferolaterally into the femoral neck, creating lucencies, which must be distinguished from infection or neoplastic lesions 4.

Most children present with atraumatic hip pain pertjes limp 3,5,6. Check for errors and try again.

Unable to process the form. Case 12 Case The presence of metaphyseal involvement not only increases the likelihood of femoral neck deformity but also make early physeal closure with resulting leg length disparity more likely.


The investigation of atraumatic limp will often include a hip ultrasound to look for effusion, but ultrasound enfer,edad unlikely to pick up osteonecrosis.
