Abstract

Spontaneous pathological fractures of the pelvic bones and the femoral neck occuring during the last three months of pregnancy or immediately after delivery are often underestimated and misinterpreted. Early diagnosis and a prompt evaluation of symptoms and signs can prevent more serious orthopedical complications and physical limitations of the women in their family and work activities. We describe a recent clinical case under our observation 20 years after the pubblication of a previous report on the same subject.
