Abstract

Rapidly Destructive Coxopathy is a rare orthopedic manifestation that results in the damage of the hip joint in a very limited timespan causing severe hip pain and disability. It is difficult to differentiate from osteoarthritis upon initial examination and can only be distinguished through frequent follow-ups and radiographic evaluation.
