All the following are radiological findings in TB of the hip except (AIIMS Nov 2012)
|A||Haziness of the juxta articular bone|
|B||Reduction of joint space|
|D||Avulsion of lesser trochanter|
Avulsion of lesser trochanter
a. Haziness of the bones around the hip is the earliest sign. Reduction of joint space is because of destruction of cartilage.
b. Wandering acetabulum is another feature wherein the lower part of the acetabulum is empty and the femoral head is uncovered.
c. Another important radiological feature is the 'mortar and pestle' appearance, in this the femoral head and neck are grossly destroyed and the head is small in size contained in an enlarged acetabulum.
