Ugeskr Læger 2019;181:V03180158
This case rapport is about a 12-year-old boy with loss of gait function over seven months after epileptic seizures. X-ray confirmed bilateral slipped capital femoral epiphysis (SCFE) probably with traumatic origin caused by the seizures. SCFE is characterised by slip of the epiphysis in relation to the metaphysis of the femoral bone. Traumatic SCFE is painful, and if untreated it can cause severe deformities and caput necrosis. Surgical treatment is necessary, one option is in situ fixation, which was the treatment of the boy in this report. At six-week post-operative control some stand function was regained.
