Lesser Trochanter Avulsion: A Rare Cause of Groin Pain

Dr. Nikhil A. Gokhale, Dr. Pradeep A. Sangnod, Dr. Sunil Shahane, Dr. Ashwin Samant

Apophyseal avulsion injuries are peculiar injuries seen in the adolescent age group. They are caused by sudden contraction of a muscle attached to the epiphysis and a cause of pain and concern in patient and relatives. Apophyseal injuries of the pelvis and proximal femur are uncommon. We report a case of a 15 year old boy who presented to us with groin pain and was diagnosed to have had an avulsion of the lesser trochanter while sprinting.
