|aseptic necrosis of the head
Nov 8, 2005
My son has HIV and has been in severe pain for the last month...in his hips, legs, lower back etc. He thought this was from an injury from running, but so far all MRI's and other tests have shown no results. How does one diagnos aseptic necrosis?
Response from Dr. Henry
Usually MRI (or even CT or plain bone X-rays) is good for diagnosing aseptic necrosis of the head of the femur. Aseptic necrosis related pain is usually more limited to hip then what you describe. KH
AZT or Epivir
