Abstract

Perthes disease refers to self-limiting idiopathic avascular necrosis of capital femoral epiphysis in a child. There is no consensus for the optimum treatment of Perthes disease even 100years after the first description. The prime aim of the treatment is to maintain the sphericity of the femoral head and the congruency of the femur-acetabulum relationship to prevent secondary degenerative arthritis. Early diagnosis and management can help the collapse of femoral head, progressive femoral head deformity, and impingement.
