Slipped capital femoral epiphysis is diagnosed too late
Slipped capital femoral epiphysis (SCFE) is a serious orthopaedic hip disease in the adolescent population. It has a prevalence of 10.8 per 100.000 children and usually occurs in children 9-16 years of age. Despite focus on delay of the diagnosis, no improvements have been made. An adoles­cent complaining of stress-related pain in the hip, groin, thigh or knee should be suspected of having SCFE, until an X-ray has excluded this diagnosis. Delayed diagnosis may have serious consequences in terms of further displace­ment of the femoral head and risk of increased avascular necrosis.
