Abstract

The authors describe 4 female patients with Osteitis Condensans Ilii (OCI): 3 of them were pluriparous, ranging 32-36 years of age; while the remaining was nulliparous and 20 years old, with a previous trauma suffered in the iliac bone. Due to the inefficacy of the medical and physical treatment, two patients underwent surgical resection of the osteitic bone; then followed by a 45 days cast immobilization and a 3-4 months with restricted load. The other 2 patients were successfully treated with Indomethacin (a 100 mg/day cycle for a month, followed by a maintainance cycle with 300 mg/day for 3 months). The diagnostic aspects are then discussed, pointing out that absence of any peripheric neurologic damage, normal bone scan, female sex and younger age are the relevant characteristics for the diagnosis of OCI.
