Abstract :

Introduction: Slipped capital femoral epiphysis (SCFE) is uncommon in daily practise, and diagnosis and treatment are usually delayed. In patients with severe slipped capital femoral epiphysis, the modified Dunn method allows for the restoration of proximal femoral morphology and proper hip function (SCFE). The purpose of this article is to outline the treatment management of unstable bilateral slipped capital femoral epiphysis in an epileptic patient. Case Report: A 9-year-old female, a known case of grandmal epilepsy, arrived in the outpatient department with a severe SCFE. The patient underwent modified Dunn osteotomy and fixation of the epiphysio-metaphysis junction with CC screw fixation. Since there is very little awareness regarding slipped capital femoral epiphysis in an epileptic patient, this case report is very rare. Conclusion: One should be vigilant about children suffering from uncontrolled epileptic attacks. A delay in diagnosis can lead to an unsatisfactory treatment outcome and a poor prognosis.
