Abstract

Pigmented villonodular synovitis is a synovial proliferative disorder that rarely involves the hip joint. It is an inflammatory response to an unknown agent. Pigmented villonodular synovitis of the hip usually presents with extensive joint destruction because of the limited joint space. Various methods of treatment modalities including synovectomy, total hip arthroplasty, radiation therapy and arthrodesis were used for treating this disease in hip joint. Diagnosis and treatment with hip arthroscopy is a new and less invasive modality comparing to open procedures.

Résumé

La synovite villo-nodulaire pigmentée est une lésion proliférative qui affecte rarement la hanche. Il s’agit d’une réponse inflammatoire à un agent inconnu. A la hanche elle se présente avec d’importantes lésions destructives en raison du confinement de l’espace articulaire. Plusieures méthodes thérapeutiques ont été proposées comprenant la syovectomie, l’arthroplastie totale de hanche, la radiothérapie et l’arthrodèse. Le diagnostic et le traitement arthroscopiques constituent des méthodes innovantes et peu invasives par comparaison avec les autres traitements.
