Hip Pain in a Teenaged Girl
A 17-year-old girl presented for evaluation of right hip pain. Several months earlier she had incurred a twisting injury to her hip when she landed from a jump while dancing. She was treated with naproxen and an intra-articular injection of bupivacaine hydrochloride and epinephrine. She denied any other recent or remote injury or trauma. She said her pain was worse with weight bearing or any activity, and she noted that she felt an occasional popping in her hip.
