Is it Legg-Perthes-Calvé disease?

– Absence of recent suspect traumatic bone lesion visible from the segments
Examined.
– Irregularity and fragmentation of the nuclei of femoral heads more marked
On the right side suggesting a bilateral Legg-Perthes-Calvé disease
Two hips.
– Control.

Hi,yes, its Perthe’s disease (avascular necrosis of femoral head epiphysis),stage 2-3.
It is irreversible and natural remodelling is usually impossible at this stage.
Needs surgery at a later age.
At present,hip abduction splints with vitamin D and calcium will help.
thanks
