Fig. 1A and B. Anteroposterior and "cone-down" oblique projections of the right innominate bone show an approximately 1 I~ cm long bony density overlying the area of the iliac crest, the bony mass, which has the shape of a digit, consists of two well-formed segments. The posterior segment shows a bulbous enlargment proximally, while its anterior end appears to form a joint with the distal segment. The latter is tapered and curved

The “Pelvic digit” — An unusual developmental anomaly
Five cases of a rare developmental anomaly involving extraskeletal bone formation with similarity to posttraumatic myositis ossificans and avulsion injuries of the pelvis (rectus femoris) are described and a differential diagnosis offered.

It is important to recognize and distinguish a pelvic digit from post-traumatic ossification and avulsion to avoid unnecessary additional investigations.
A symptomatic pelvic rib.
A case of 15-year-old male, diagnosed with a symptomatic pelvic rib, which had an unusual presentation creating a pseudotumour associated with pain and reduced range of motion in the hip joint is reported.

Anterior Inferior Iliac Spine (AIIS) and Subspine Hip Impingement.
Important differences in the pathogenesis, clinical presentation and management of extra-articular hip impingement from both the AIIS and subspine bony regions, and the outcome following surgical intervention are highlighted.
