Forskningsoutput: TidskriftsbidragArtikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift

Abstract

In 50 consecutive cases of slipped capital femoral epiphysis (SCFE) from 49 families, the heredity was analyzed by radiographic examination of the first-degree relatives and by interview regarding the second-degree relatives. In four of the 49 families, SCFE was obvious in one or more first-degree relatives; and in another 13 families (14 relatives), radiographic signs of SCFE were found besides the primary case. the familial accumulation was much higher than expected from incidence studies, indicating a hereditary factor in the etiology.
