Transient osteoporosis of the hip is an uncommon, self-limited entity of unknown cause. The condition was first described by Curtiss and Kincaid in 1959 as a syndrome of transient demineralisation of the hip in the third trimester of pregnancy. Generally, the patients are women in the third trimester of pregnancy or middle-aged men who are seen initially with acute progressive hip pain. The other factors that may cause synovitis and osteopenia do not accompany the disease. Joint space has usually been protected. Transient osteoporosis of the hip, which has a benign pattern, usually improves spontaneously in a few months . In this article, we aimed to review transient osteoporosis of the hip with a case who had right hip pain and was diagnosed as transient osteoporosis of the hip.
