Radiograph of a septic hip
AP radiograph of the pelvis shows symmetrical ossification of the femoral epiphyses and normal acetabulae bilaterally. The right femoral epiphysis was felt to be displaced laterally in comparison to the left. A hip ultrasound showed a right hip joint effusion, which when tapped under ultrasound guidance returned pus.

The diagnosis was septic arthritis of hip.
