Case Study
The article presents case studies of patients who are suffering from femoroacetabular impingement which is a major risk factor for the development of osteoarthritis of the hip. One of the case studies is of a twenty-year-old man who is suffering from mild pain in the right groin. His radiographic examination demonstrated the presence of an osteochondroma just proximal to the level of the lesser trochanter.
