Description: A 19-year-old man with a complete cervical spinal cord injury was found to have bilateral hip effusions. Joint aspiration yielded a right sterile hydroarthrosis and a left sterile hemarthrosis.
CONCLUSION: This case indicates that hip effusion may be a similar, less-common occurrence than knee effusion in patients with spinal cord injury.
