Abstract

A case report is presented of a patient with an unusual presentation of idiopathic bilateral avascular necrosis of the femoral heads after a period of multiple presentations and misdiagnoses in the ED. This is the first such case described presenting in this way and highlights the importance of establishing a firm diagnosis and instituting appropriate management.
