Abstract

Hip pain in the pediatric population can be a challenging presenting complaint to assess. An extensive differential list, including the possibility of infection, transient conditions, and malignancy, results in numerous questions that can render diagnosis difficult. As clinicians, it is imperative that we have the ability to recognize, properly diagnose, and possibly treat the multitude of potential pediatric hip disorders. Here the authors present the incidence, characteristics, and treatment of various benign tumors and tumor-like conditions of the pediatric hip.
