Pathologic femoral neck fracture due to renal osteodystrophy is rare. We report the case of a young adult patient with chronic renal failure who presented with bilateral spontaneous femoral neck fractures due to renal osteodystrophy. The pathophysiology of renal osteodystrophy and the treatment of hip fractures in patients with renal failure is discussed.
