ABSTRACT

Diagnosis: Developmental Dysplasia of the Hip vs Legg-Perthe-Calve

History: 34 y.o. active duty man presents to MSK sick call with complaint of chronic, left-sided hip pain. He states that he has had this pain for years - but it has gotten steadily worse over the past 3-4 years.

Findings: Examination: AP view of the pelvis. No similar prior study. FINDINGS: Examination is abnormal. There is marked flattening of both femoral heads, especially on the left side. There is medial migration of the bilateral femoral heads and both hip joints appear more shallow and irregular than generally seen, especially on the left side. No acute fracture or dislocation.

Ddx: In a patient of this age the findings are most likely a sequela of a childhood disease such as developmental dysplasia of the hip or Legg-Calve-Perthes syndrome (avascular necrosis of the hip)

Dxhow: Imaging characteristics

Exam: Patient ambulates without apparent abnormality.

No MeSH data available.
