BMC Musculoskeletal Disorders, 04/06/2012
Manzi G et al. – A 36–years–old woman, affected by autosomal dominant osteopetrosis was referred to the department because of a septic hip arthritis associated with femoral neck septic non–union, with draining fistulas. In case of hip septic arthritis and proximal femur septic non–union, femoral head resection may not be the only option available and staged total hip arthroplasty can be considered.
