There is a separate system for staging of Perthes disease see Catterall classification. In a small number of patients with Perthes, the radiograph will be normal and persistent symptoms will trigger further imaging, e. Presentation is typically at a younger age than slipped upper femoral epiphysis with peak presentation at years, but confidence intervals are as wide as years 8.

Blood tests are typically normal in Perthes. This may precipitate the presentation or the realisation of symptoms that in fact had been long standing. Osteonecrosis generally occurs secondary to abnormal or damaged snfermedad supply to the femoral epiphysis, leading to fragmentation, bone loss, and eventual structural collapse of the femoral head.

The best initial test for perthds diagnosis of Perthes is a pelvic radiograph. In this situation, operative management is sometimes required to either ensure appropriate coverage of the femoral head by the acetabulum, or to replace the femoral head in adult life.

Additionally, tongues of cartilage sometimes extend inferolaterally into the femoral neck, creating lucencies, which must be distinguished from infection or neoplastic lesions 4. Case 20 Case The radiographic changes to the femoral epiphyses depend on the severity of osteonecrosis and the amount of time that there has been alteration of blood supply:.
