Figure 4 (A-F): A 11 year old female child with Stage III of Idiopathic Chondrolysis of Hip who presented with complaints of limping and right hip pain for a longer duration. Child was earlier treated as some other condition. Patient subsequently underwent total hip replacement. (A) Fat suppressed coronal T2 weighted image shows widening of the abnormal focus in the femoral head with femoral head collapse, acetabular involvement and loss of joint space. (B) Fat suppressed coronal T1weighted coronal image shows widening of the abnormal focus in the femoral head with femoral head collapse, acetabular involvement and loss of joint space. (C) CT scan shows widening of the femoral head with collapse, acetabular involvement, osteoporotic changes and loss of joint space. Advanced degenerative changes like sclerosis and cyst formation also seen. (D-F) Earlier MRI of the same child which was taken 6 months before shows typical features of Stage I
