Figure 1 (A-F): 10 year old female child with Stage I of Idiopathic Chondrolysis of Hip(patient 9 in table 1), presented with right sided hip pain and stiffness for 15 days. (A) Coronal fat suppressed T2 weighted image shows a wedge shaped hyperintensity in the middle third of proximal right femoral head epiphysis is characterstic of idiopathic chondrolysis of hip. The accetabulum was normal. (B) Axial T2 weighted image shows a wedge shaped hyperintensity in the medial aspect of right femoral head. Minimal joint effusion is seen. (C) Coronal T1 weighted image shows a wedge shaped hypointensity in the head of right femur. (D) GRE image shows thinning of the articular cartilage overlying the wedge shaped area. (E and F) MRI shows similar findings in the left hip of an 10 years old girl who presented with left hip pain and stiffness
