Abstract

This report describes the case of a 47-year-old woman who was found to have subchondral insufficiency fractures in both femoral heads after renal transplantation. Initially, plain radiographs showed no obvious changes, but magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) revealed an irregular, discontinuous, low-intensity band on the T1-weighted image of both hips. The patient was treated non surgically. Ten months after onset, the pain in both hips disappeared, and plain radiographs and MRI showed no abnormalities. Subchondral insufficiency fracture should be considered in the diagnosis of patients who have hip pain after renal transplantation.
