Transient osteoporosis of the hip is a clinical entity that is being diagnosed and reported with increasing frequency. Its aetiology remains a matter of speculation, and the same remains true for its treatment. Many researchers have proposed different surgical and non-surgical treatment strategies; but the conservative approach, which takes the form of analgesics, intermittent traction, range of motion exercises, abductor strengthening exercises and restricted weight bearing, is preferred. The authors report on two patients, both women, aged 35 years and 42 years, respectively, with transient osteoporosis of the hip that were successfully treated using a conservative approach.
