Perthes' Disease

Perthes' disease - Better Health Channel  -open

Perthes' disease is a disease of the hip joint that affects children. The femoral head deteriorates because of poor blood supply. Most children with Perthes' disease eventually recover, but the bone can take between two and five years to re-grow. Perthes' disease is also known as Legg-Calve-Perthes disease or coxa plana.
