ABSTRACT
Groin pain may stem from a variety of different causes. Adductor tendinopathy is a common but infrequently recognised cause of chronic groin pain especially in athletes. This case report describes a case of clinically suspected adductor tendinopathy in an amateur athlete confirmed by MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging). Relevant literature on musculotendinous injuries of the groin along with differential diagnosis for groin pain is discussed. There are several differential diagnoses for athletes that present with groin pain. Therefore, it is important to accurately diagnose the origin of groin pain as the plan of management is dependent of the specificity of the diagnosis. The diagnosis of adductor tendinopathy is made with a history of chronic groin pain along with pain/weakness during isometric adduction of the hip muscles. It is confirmed by MR imaging.
