A prospective study was done on 100 post-menopausal women presenting with hip fracture, with the objective to measure the osteoporosis by the Singh Index. All women were more than 49 years of age. About 84% cases sustained fracture after trivial trauma, the commonest mode of trauma being fall from standing position (90%). There were seven cases of moderate type of osteoporosis (grade 4) and 93 cases of severe type of osteoporosis (grade1, 2,3). There were seven cases of non-concurrent fracture of both hips, following trivial trauma. None of the patients were aware of osteoporosis. There is strong need of aggressive treatment in established osteoporosis and comprehensive preventive measure is needed.
