    […] head of the femur is partially displaced or uncovered Femoral head is totally outside the acetabulum Breech delivery, large neonates, twin or multiple births, idiopathic scoliosis[] The condition tends to worsen as the child grows and if not treated, may result in the child learning to walk with a limp or unusual waddling gait.[] […] avascular necrosis of the femoral head, persistent limp, premature development of degenerative arthritis of the hip, leg length discrepancy, lumbar lordosis, knee pain, scoliosis[]

  • Psoas Abscess

    Two years later, she presented with fever, limping gait, and right flank pain.[] […] alternate diagnoses MRI is the gold standard, it is more sensitive than CT abdomen and can also diagnoses/ exclude epidural abscess ultrasound and radiographs are not useful (a scoliosis[] […] alternate diagnoses MRI is the gold standard, it is more sensitive than CT abdo and can also diagnoses/ exclude epidural abscess ultrasound and radiographs are not useful (a scoliosis[]

  • Coxitis Fugax

    Scoliosis Congenital changes occur in the presence of diseases of the muscles or the nervous system, as well as in metabolic diseases.[] The gait is disrupted and the child limps. Sometimes the child does not want to stand or walk at all. Sideways elevation and rotational movements of the hip are limited.[] The most common form of limp, an antalgic gait, is caused by pain.[]

  • Coxa Vara
