PMID:  2088586     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
The case of a young female with hip pain and acetabular subchondral lucencies on conventional radiographs is presented. Computed tomography (CT) demonstrated subchondral lucencies in the femoral head as well, and an arthrogram revealed synovial irregularities. The differential diagnosis is discussed with an approach to subchondral lucencies. A synovectomy was performed on this patient with pigmented villonodular synovitis.
