Bilateral transient osteoporosis of the knee during pregnancy


Charpidou, Theodosia; Lang, Franziska; Langenegger, Thomas; Dedes, Konstantin J; Honegger, Christoph (2013). Bilateral transient osteoporosis of the knee during pregnancy. Archives of Gynecology and Obstetrics, 287(6):1259-1261.

Abstract

Transient osteoporosis is a rare disease, which can affect pregnant women in the third trimester. Bone marrow edema syndrome, transient bone demineralization, hip algodystrophy, regional migratory osteoporosis, and even reflex sympathetic dystrophy all are terms that have been used to describe the condition. Babinsky and Fromen first documented the symptoms of transient osteoporosis in 1916, and in 1959 Curtiss and Kincaid discussed two cases affecting women in the third trimester of pregnancy. The hip joints are most commonly affected in pregnant women, being reported in 76 % of cases.
