The article presents information on the clinical presentation, radiographic findings, and surgical management of a patient diagnosed with bilateral spontaneous ruptures of the gluteus medius and minimus tendons. The patient, a 42 year-old woman, was presented with a seven-month history of atraumatk, moderate-to-severe debilitating pain in the lateral aspect of the right hip.

    Gluteus maximus is a bulky muscle with three sources of blood supplying also a skin flap that extends from iliac crest down to the popliteal fossa. The myocutaneous flap has been used long time ago, as an insensate flap, to cover defects in the buttocks. [9] [10] [12] In this study we use this...
