Graviditetsudløst transient osteoporose som årsag til hoftesmerter post partum

Translated title of the contribution: Post-partum transient osteoporosis of the hip causing pain.


Transient osteoporosis of the hip (TOH) affects pregnant women in the third trimester of pregnancy. Magnetic resonance imaging plays an important role in the diagnosis and shows a pattern of bone marrow oedema. We report a case of TOH post-partum with involvement of both hips in a 34-year-old woman. She was known with undifferentiated spondyloartritis since 2004, which posed a diagnostic challenge. The reported patient was treated conservatively avoiding lactation, weight bearing activities, increased intake of calcium and vitamin D and recovered without further medical treatment.
