Diseases of the hip

Hip pain is often the cause of hip disease. There are a variety of hip diseases whose causes can be, for example, congenital malpositions or inflammation. Here is an overview of the most common hip diseases.

Outline of hip diseases

Below you will find the most common hip disorders and injuries divided into:

  1. Childhood disorders due to congenital malocclusion
  2. Inflammation of the hip
  3. Degernative diseases of the hip
  4. Illnesses due to traumatic injuries

Childhood disorders due to congenital malocclusion

hip dysplasia

Hip dysplasia is a childish maturation disorder with pancreatic ossification disorder. In the further development of the femoral head from the pan auskugeln = luxieren and develop a hip dislocation.
Hip dysplasia is a high-risk factor for the development of hip osteoarthritis (coxarthrosis). Due to the missing ladle roof (oriel), the weight transfer from the thigh (femur) to the pelvis becomes unfavorable due to a lack of congruence of the joint partners

Coxitis fugax

A coxitis fugax is also known as hip fever and is an inflammation of the child's hip joint. Coxitis fugax usually heals without consequences under appropriate therapy.
For more information see our topic: Coxitis fugax.

Epiphysiolysis capitis femoris

The Epiphysiolysis capitis femoris is a detachment and slipping of the femoral neck head in the growth joint of the femoral neck, usually in the early pubertal age.

Morbus Perthes

M. perthes is a circulatory disorder of the child's femoral head of unknown cause.

Inflammation of the hip

Bursitis of the hip - bursitis trochanterica

A bursitis trochanterica is an inflammation of the bursa of the hip. This lies between the gluteal muscles and the thighbone.

Tendinitis on the hip

An inflammation of the tendon at the hip is an inflammation of the connective tissue connection of a muscle with the bone, which is also called a tendon.

Tendinitis calcarea

Tendinitis calcarea is an inflammatory reaction due to calcification in the tendons of the hip muscles.

Degenerative diseases of the hip


The term "hip joint arthrosis" (= coxarthrosis or coxarthrosis) includes all degenerative diseases in the hip joint caused by disease (eg congenital disorder of the functional unit femoral head - acetabulum or circulatory, or metabolic disorders, ...), accident (eg femoral neck fracture ) or wear caused.

Common to all causative diseases is the increasing destruction of the articular cartilage, which eventually also affects joint structures (joint capsule, bone) and the associated musculature.

femoral head necrosis

Hüftkopfnekrose are all acquired diseases of the femoral head to understand that lead by ischemia (lack of blood flow to the femoral head) to a different size, usually partial death of the femoral head and in their final stage in a coxarthrosis (hip osteoarthritis) can pass.
For more information visit: Hüftkopfnekrose

Cartilage damage on the hip

Cartilage damage to the hip damages the cartilage, which is found in the hip joint and provides painless movement.

Illnesses due to traumatic injuries

Femoral neck fracture

In a femoral neck fracture / femoral neck fracture, the upper end of the femur breaks just below the femoral head (femoral head), mostly due to a fall on the lateral hip.
For more information see: femoral neck fracture and femoral neck fracture


An acetabular fracture is understood to mean the fracture of the acetabulum. This forms the acetabulum for the hip joint, in which the thigh bone moves.
