Abstract

A rare case of bilateral pathological femoral neck fractures secondary to ectopic parathyroid adenoma is reported. Both hip fractures were treated with closed reduction and internal fixation. The right hip fracture healed uneventfully, whereas the left hip fracture developed non-union that required subtrochanteric osteotomy and internal fixation and eventually healed. Neither hip developed avascular necrosis.
