Case report of a 62-year-old patient with a presumed loosening of a hip endoprosthesis after 10 years and a planned replacement. In addition, the patient suffered pain in the thigh and had paresis of the femoral nerve. A CAT-Scan substantiated the diagnosis either of a suppurating or a neoplastic tumour in the left iliac foss. The wide excision revealed a rare inflammatory tumour in the left ileopsoas muscle due to the excessive abrasion of the metal hip endoprosthesis.
