Coexistent Legg-Calvé-Perthes disease and slipped capital femoral epiphysis in the same child.

Journal Article (Academic article)

Legg-Calvé-Perthes disease and slipped capital femoral epiphysis in the same child occurs rarely. Three cases from Indiana University Medical Center (Indianapolis, IN) are reported. The two disease entities appear to be unrelated. However, a child with Legg-Calvé-Perthes disease in one hip may develop a slipped capital femoral epiphysis in the contralateral hip.
