ABSTRACT

Diagnosis: Osteoarthritis of the hips bilaterally, secondary to slipped capital femoral epiphyses.

History: The patient is a 52 year-old African-American male with bilateral DJD secondary to slipped capital femoral epiphyses at a young age.

Findings: AP and frog-leg views of the hips demonstrating marked joint space narrowing bilaterally, especially in the superolateral regions. There is also evidence of subchondral sclerosis and cyst formation. In the superior aspects of the acetabula, large osteophytes are present bilaterally. Both femoral heads demonstrate contour abnormalities consistent with slipped capital femoral epiphyses, the right side greater than the left. There is no evidence of flattening or collapse of the femoral heads, and they are well covered by the acetabulum.
