Differentiating between septic arthritis and transient synovitis of the hip in children: an evidence-based clinical prediction algorithm.

Abstract

BACKGROUND A child who has an acutely irritable hip can pose a diagnostic challenge. The purposes of this study were to determine the diagnostic value of presenting variables for differentiating between septic arthritis and transient synovitis of the hip in children and to develop an evidence-based clinical prediction algorithm for this differentiation… (More)
