AP radiograph of the pelvis of a 10-year-old girl who presented with a painful effusion of the left hip. There are lytic changes seen in the calcar of the femur just above the lesser trochanter with osteopenia of all the juxta-articular structures suggesting the diagnosis of hematogenous osteomyelitis of the femoral neck. The joint fluid aspirate was cloudy suggesting an infectious pyarthrosis, however the cultures were negative. The lesion was curetted.
