Case Study
The article presents a case study of an eleven year old patient who is suffering from slipped capital femoral epiphysis which is a well known disorder of the hip in adolescents. Physical examination of the girl is normal, except with regard to the right lower extremity. Her radiographs computed tomography revealed an anterior-inferior slip of the capital femoral epiphysis of the right hip.

    Background: Recent studies suggest that even a mild slip of the femoral capital epiphysis may lead to later degenerative changes when undiagnosed. However, little is written on the accuracy of radiographic measurements used to diagnose a slip at skeletal maturity. Purpose: To assess the accuracy...
