The purpose of this study was to evaluate the utility of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) as the diagnostic tool in children with hip pain, without any diagnostic clue on routine investigations. Thirty-five patients with hip pain with no definite radiographic or laboratory findings were investigated with MRI. Four patients had bilateral symptoms. Out of 39 hips, diagnosis of transient synovitis was made in 35 patients. Out of the other four hips, 2 hips showed reversible ischemic changes in the proximal femur. In one hip MRI showed inflammation of the ipsi-lateral sacro-iliac joint and in one hip MRI showed infection of the ilium. The sensitivity of MRI in detecting the joint fluid and early changes in the bone and joint was confirmed. The MRI was found to be of value in the patients with prolonged and recurrent symptoms for early detection of underlying disorder.
