Traumatic trochanteric bursitis

Kans Med. 1989 Jan;90(1):17-8, 22.


The trochanteric bursa is anatomically quite susceptible to traumatic injury. However, specific reports of traumatic trochanteric bursitis in the literature are lacking. This may be due to failure to recognize this condition and to differentiate it from other pain syndromes involving the hip. This case report demonstrates the clinical presentation and management of traumatic trochanteric bursitis.
