Legg Calve Perthes disease

Legg Calve Perthes disease

Legg Calve Perthes disease refers to idiopathic osteonecrosis of the femoral head, usually affecting children 3 to 12 years old with a mean age of 7 years.

Radiographic findings include a small femoral head epiphysis, which may become fragmented, and widening of the articular space, which may be due to an associated joint effusion.
