Ischiofemoral Impingement Due to an Undiagnosed Pelvic Avulsion Fracture.

Ischial tuberosity (IT) avulsion fractures are an uncommon cause of injuries in athletes. In this case, a 26-year-old female suffering from posterior right hip pain for over a decade presented with debility and a decrease in athletic function. Notable history included a hamstring strain while sprinting in elementary school. Clinical examination suggested hamstring tendinopathy and ischiofemoral impingement (IFI). Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) revealed a chronic, fragmented, IT apophyseal avulsion fracture with ischial bursitis and edema within the fragmented bone, suggesting the development of heterotopic ossification (HO). Diagnostic ultrasound revealed signs of IFI, not evident on MRI. Ultrasound-guided corticosteroid injection in her ischial bursa and ischiofemoral space provided complete relief. The patient was able to resume her activities of daily living and sports-related activities without pain. Although interventional treatments may provide temporary pain relief, a multimodal approach is required for the treatment of HO.
