16 years old male patient came to clinic with complaint Rt hip pain and limping 3 years ago ..share your diagnosis and management ?



Its a slipped capital femoral epiphysis. Kindly do an MRI to assess the vascularity of the head and the CAM impingement. Get an endocrine opinion and also rule out hypothyroidism. It's a chronic slip. It needs a bilateral surgery . Tackle the right first by doing a safe surgical dislocation and bumpectomy, and debridement of the acetabular labrum. Once he is well do the same to the left. It needs to be tackled by an expert only.

Slipped capital femoral epiphysis. Treatment is usually surgical pinning/repair
