Bilateral fibular hemimelia associated with hip dislocation and femoral head necrosis

Clin Case Rep. 2018 Mar 24;6(5):959-960. doi: 10.1002/ccr3.1489. eCollection 2018 May.

Abstract

We describe a case of association of congenital bone abnormalities. It will allow clinicians to look systematically for other skeletal malformations and teach them how to evaluate these cases for the first time. This early screening will enable appropriate treatment to avoid complications and to preserve functional prognosis.
