The authors postulate that Rapid Destructive Coxarthrosis represents an uncommon, rapidly destructive subset of Osteoarthrosis. Rapid progression of pain and disability was a consistent clinical feature. The 5 cases described show clinical development and radiographic findings that could mimic those of disorders such as septic arthritis, reumatoid and seronegative arthritis, primary osteonecrosis and neuropathic ostearthropaty. The differential diagnosis int other diseases was possible thanks to the exams performed (Rx, Technetium 99 and Radiogallium Bone Scan, CAT) and hematochemical values. Macroscopical and microscopical pathological findings in three patients that underwent surgery confirmed the CAT finding.
