Case 0. Buttock splints?
55 yo male who injured himself 4 years ago skiing. Complains of chronic right posterolateral “hip” pain worsening over the last year. Case referred by a chiropractor. Looks like chronic periosteal reaction on radiographs adjacent to ilium. Marked edema in gluteus minimus. I think there is also an avulsion of the indirect head of the rectus femoris. Anyone ever see anything like this? Any thoughts?

Cool case, Tom! I haven’t seen an injury at this site. However, this patient’s findings are similar to those I’ve seen in some patients at the hamstring origin on ischial tuberosity.
