An Overlooked Entity in Diagnosing Hip Pain with Neuropathy in an Athletic Young Adult: A Case Report
Hip pain is frequently encountered in the athletic community. Femoro-acetabular impingement (FAI) is a common cause of hip pain in young adults. However, it is important to appreciate the uncommon diagnosis and the role of imaging for unexplained hip pain. The pathology behind a posterior hip pain is often misdiagnosed as the cause of hip pain is non-specific, extensive and elusive. We managed to detect the pathology through magnetic resonance arthrography (MRA) of hip with gadolinium enhancement after a series of inconclusive history, physical examination and imaging findings were completed. This particular case vignettes an overlooked osteoid osteoma that leads to the delay in diagnosis and increase morbidity.
