OBJECTIVES: This paper describes the natural course of irritable hip pain associated with spinal rigidity and pain in the thoracic region with subsequent development of mild kyphosis in a girl with a mutation in the collagen 2 alpha 1 gene (type II collagenopathy). METHODS: Phenotypic and genotypic characterization was carried out in a 14-year-old girl to identify the underlying pathology of severe irritable hip pain associated with thoracic spinal rigidity and pain...

UNLABELLED: ABSTRACT: BACKGROUND: Morquio syndrome is an autosomal recessive lysosomal storage disorder, a mucopolysaccharidosis (PMS), characterized by abnormal metabolism of glycosaminoglycans. Major treatable concerns in patients with MPS type IV involve C1 to C2 instability, genu valgum, and hip subluxation. All patients demonstrate characteristic acetabular dysplasia and failure of ossification of the superolateral femoral head. CASE PRESENTATION: We report on a 6-year-old boy whose prime presentation was a waddling gait associated with pain since early childhood...

A retrospective radiographic analysis of the acetabulum of 13 patients (14 hips) with proximal femoral focal deficiency (PFFD), clinically classified into Gillespie and Torode type 1, was performed to better understand its morphologic features at maturity. The version of the proximal part of the acetabulum was determined quantitatively and qualitatively. All 14 hips showed residual or borderline acetabular dysplasia with a mean lateral centre-edge angle of -1.5degrees and an acetabular index of 30degrees. The acetabular dome was retroverted in all hips and averaged -24degrees...

Phagicola pithecophagicola Faust, 1920, the type species of Phagicola Faust, 1920 (Trematoda: Heterophyidae: Phagicolinae), is redescribed on the basis of examination of type specimens (syntypes) from the monkey-eating eagle, Pithecophaga jeffreyi, from the Philippines. The oral sucker is armed with 1 complete row of 16 circumoral spines (10-19.5 microns long by 4-8 microns wide) and 4 accessory spines (5.5-8 microns long by 3-4 microns wide) on the dorsal side; this arrangement differs from the original description and later redescriptions, where only 12 circumoral spines in 1 row were reported...

Changes in pelvic shape in human ontogeny and hominid phylogeny suggest that the heterochronic processes involved differ greatly from the neotenic process traditionally described in the evolution of the skull. The morphology of 150 juvenile and adult pelves of African apes, 60 juvenile and adult pelves of modern humans, two adult pelves and a juvenile hip bone of australopithecines (Sts 14, AL 288, MLD 7) was studied. Multivariate results, ontogenetic allometries, and growth curves confirm that the pelvic growth pattern in humans differs markedly from those of the African apes...

In the early 1970s, excavation at the King site, a contact period Mississippian village in northwest Georgia, yielded the skeletal remains of a robust male (King 65) possessing marked hypertrophy of the acetabulo-cristal buttress. The buttress is morphologically similar to that of Plio-Pleistocene Homo but it is accompanied by an anatomically modern degree of thickening of the gluteal table of the ilium. Although the degree of cortical thickness of the gluteal table of the ilium is apparently species-specific, hypertrophy of the acetabulo-cristal buttress is developmental and may be expressed in all species of Homo...

Sixty Salter innominate osteotomies were analysed retrospectively with a mean post-operative follow-up of five years. The 53 children, suffering from congenital dislocation of the hip discovered at walking age, had initially been treated by Somerville-Petit conservative management. The results were assessed using the Severin classification and showed 80 per cent of good results (Severin groups Ia, Ib and IIa). The bad results were all due to errors of operative indications (failure to respect the Salter pre-requisites) or technical faults...

Descriptions of Southwest Asian Neandertal os coxae have stressed the supero-inferior flattening and acetabulo-symphyseal elongation of the superior pubic rami. Further analysis of Neandertal pubes, including two European specimens. La Ferrassie I and Krapina 208, indicates that Neandertal pubes are distinguished primarily by a relative elongation of the superior rami. The supero-inferior flattening of the pubic rami with the formation of a distinct ventral border, present among the Southwest Asian Neandertals, is less pronounced among the European Neandertals...
