At present, Lyme disease may be the most common cause of infectious arthritis involving the hip for people living in endemic areas of the United States (see Chapter 8). Most infections in the hip are sudden in onset and associated with rapidly worsening symptoms of pain, fever, and difficulty in walking. A child with these symptoms should be seen by a physician as soon as possible. Tuberculosis may cause slowly worsening symptoms of hip pain. A child with an acutely painful hip should be seen by an orthopedist.

A full discussion of the types of bone tumors and their treatment is far beyond the scope of this book, but like tumors elsewhere, bone tumors begin very small and grow relatively slowly. Often they are easily visible on routine X-ray by the time they are producing pain. H I P PA I N Most often, children with hip pain walk with a very abnormal gait. If the pain is sudden and severe, the child may not be able to walk at all. A child who is unable 20 | M Y C H I L D C O M P L A I N S O F PA I N to walk after trauma or a fall needs immediate medical evaluation to exclude fractures and other orthopedic injuries.

Because this protrusion is just under the skin at the side of the hip, it is protected by a bursa. The bursa is a small sac of fluid that allows easy movement of the tissues over the bone (see Fig. 3-5). With excessive running or other activities, this bursa may become inflamed, a condition called trochanteric bursitis. Typically, this is a problem of teenagers or adults and not younger children. The classic complaint is pain along the side of the leg that can be reproduced by pressure over the greater trochanter.
