Özet

A 15-year-old boy with mild haemophilia who regularly participates in contact sports presented with right hip pain radiating to the groin and buttock areas and difficulty in walking. Conventional radiography disclosed a heterotopic new bone formation in the adductor region. The reformatted and three-dimensional reconstructed images of computerized tomography (CT) scans detailed an incomplete pelvi-femoral bone bridge formation in the quadratus femoris muscle, which was located very close to the sciatic nerve but did not cause any clinical symptoms. Postural exercises and clinical survey were selected as the primary treatment.
