  Title Symptomatic herniation pit of the femoral neck: a case report
Journal J Manipulative Physiol Ther. 2005 Jul-Aug;28(6):449-451
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Case Report
Abstract/Notes OBJECTIVE: To discuss herniation pits of the femoral neck as a possible source of hip pain in a young athletic population. CLINICAL FEATURES: A 25-year-old former varsity volleyball player sought treatment for recurrent episodes of sharp left hip pain after intense physical activity. Radiographs revealed a small, oval, lobulated radiolucency with a thin sclerotic border in the superolateral aspect of the left femoral neck. Passive internal rotation of the left hip reproduced the complaint. Iliopsoas tendinitis/bursitis tests did not reproduce the complaint. INTERVENTION AND OUTCOME: The patient reported no significant reduction of hip pain after a variety of conservative therapies including soft tissue therapy, stretching, interferential current, and long-axis distraction. CONCLUSION: There is evidence to suggest that herniation pits of the femoral neck are a result of mechanical stress from the overlying joint capsule and iliopsoas tendon. Herniation pits of the femoral neck should be considered a potential cause of hip pain, particularly if the patient is physically active.
