Bilateral ischiofemoral impingement in a patient with hereditary multiple exostoses
- 488 Downloads
The skeletal anatomy of the hip provides two main locations for impingement: abnormal contact between the acetabulum and femur (femoroacetabular impingement) or between the ischium and femur (ischiofemoral impingement). We report a case of bilateral ischiofemoral impingement in a patient with hereditary multiple exostoses. The association of exostoses and femoral metaphyseal widening resulted in the narrowing of the ischiofemoral spaces. Pain was improved on the left side by resection of the ischial exostosis.
