A 22-year-old female patient, suffering from bilateral developmental hip dysplasia, underwent bilateral total hip arthroplasty at the age of 15. Seven years later, she was referred to an orthopedic consultation due to prolonged hip pain on the right side. Physical examination revealed a right hip “click” and a CT examination was ordered to evaluate the hip arthroplasty.
