Epiphyseolysis capitis femoris

Boy, age 16 years, not affected of adipositas, suffered from pain in the left hip and limping. Not related to trauma. Pain during the last 2-3 months.

Positive Drehmann sign.

 

 

 

 

 

 

The ap - x ray seems "normal". On the axial x-ray you can see the slipped femural epiphysis.

 

 

 

 

Surgical procedure: according Fish-Dunn procedure with hip luxation described by R. Ganz.  The opposite site was fixed with screws to prevent slipping on the rigth site.
