Description: Avascular necrosis has been documented following Disseminated Intravascular Coagulation 2 . We are presenting such a case of bilateral avascular necrosis of femoral heads, which interestingly was followed by the spontaneous presentation of the patient's sister with a unilateral avascular necrosis of the femoral head. Both sisters presented with symptoms at the same age. N. Jane Madeley, Mohammed Maqsood, Arshad Bhatti: Hidden Predisposition To Osteonecrosis Of The Femoral Head.
