BACKGROUND Slipped capital femoral epiphysis (SCFE) is a hip disorder frequently occurring in adolescence. In adults it is rare and so far very few cases have been documented. CASE PRESENTATION This report presents a 25-year-old patient diagnosed with an anterior fossa giant chondroma, hypogonadotropic hypogonadism, and SCFE. The patient underwent surgical and hormonal therapy. His symptoms revealed, and he became a father. CONCLUSIONS Every patient diagnosed with SCFE in adulthood should undergo endocrinological assessment based on physical examination and laboratory tests.

BACKGROUND The modified Dunn procedure (MDP) has risen enthusiasm in treating slipped capital femoral epiphyses (SCFE) due to the anatomic reduction and high patients' satisfaction rates at long-term follow-up. Main aim of this study is to compare clinical and radiographic outcomes of 2 cohorts with moderate to severe stable SCFE treated by MDP and in situ fixation. METHODS Medical records were analysed to collect demographic data, comorbidities and time from slip to surgery. The collected posto...

Background Modified Dunn procedure has become popular for the treatment of severe cases of slipped capital femoral epiphysis (SCFE). We assessed the outcomes in a consecutive series of thirty Indian adolescents treated by the modified Dunn procedure. Materials and methods All patients treated by the modified Dunn procedure by a single senior Paediatric Orthopaedic surgeon over six years were retrospectively reviewed. Only moderate and severe slips undergoing modified Dunn procedure were included...

BACKGROUND: Slipped capital femoral epiphysis (SCFE) is an important cause of hip pain and disability in pediatric patients. SCFE occurs bilaterally in 12% to 80% of cases, and the risk of contralateral SCFE is noted to be 2335 times higher than the index SCFE. Several studies have reported risk factors for contralateral SCFE; however, these studies have not been systematically analyzed. The purpose of this systematic review and meta-analysis was to review and analyze risk factors for subsequent...

A 15-year-old boy presented with insidious onset bilateral thigh pain for 6 months. Examination of hips showed restricted internal rotation. Pelvis radiograph (figure 1) showed bilateral slipped capital femoral epiphysis (SCFE) with subchondral bone resorption in right inferior pubic rami and ilium . Hand radiograph (figure 2) showed subperiosteal bone resorption along the radial aspect of middle phalanges. Figure 1 Anteroposterior view of pelvis shows whole epiphysis lying inferior to the line ...

Turner syndrome has been extensively reviewed in the medical literature, yet little has been discussed regarding the skeletal manifestations. It is important to be familiar with the clinical findings and comorbid conditions in Turner syndrome, as they may be the first line of diagnosis when a patient presents for short stature, scoliosis, or slipped capital femoral epiphysis (SCFE) and if unrecognized may result in significant morbidity.

Introduction: Slipped capital femoral epiphysis (SCFE) is a condition which predominantly occurs in adolescents. SCFE is extremely rare in adults, and nearly all previous reported cases have been associated with an endocrine disorder.

BACKGROUND: Slipped capital femoral epiphysis (SCFE) is believed to be associated with childhood obesity, although the strength of the association is unknown. METHODS: We performed a cohort study using routine data from health screening examinations at primary school entry (5–6 years old) in Scotland, linked to a nationwide hospital admissions database. A subgroup had a further screening examination at primary school exit (11–12 years old). RESULTS: BMI was available for 597 017 children at 5 to...

: Slipped capital femoral epiphysis (SCFE) is a slippage of the femoral epiphysis (femoral head) on the femoral neck. Femoral epiphysis usually slips backward and inward because of body weight. This disorder mainly occurs during puberty. We report the very rare case of a child with cerebral palsy associated with spasticity of the limbs.
