AP radiograph of the proximal femur of a 14-year-old basketball player shows evidence of dense sclerotic reactive bone extending over approximately three inches of the medial cortex of the upper femur as a response to a adductor muscle pull from playing basketball. The symptoms of pain that had plagued the boy for several months disappeared spontaneously with three months of rest.
