Abstract


Bone infarction is a term, referred for osteonecrosis of bone involving its metaphysis or diaphysis. Neck of femur fracture secondary to bone infarction of proximal femur is a very rare entity. A bone infarct may mimic a bone tumour on imaging. Therefore accurate pre-operative assessment plays a significant role in its diagnosis.  We are reporting a rare case of fracture neck femur, which has occurred secondary to bone infarcts of proximal femur in a 50-year-old male, which was successfully treated with cemented bipolar hemiarthroplasty after a careful diagnosis.


Keywords
