Acute posttraumatic limp is a common reason for children's hospitalization; however, the diagnosis is not always easy for trauma physicians because sometimes the signs are not specific and its diagnostic images are unclear. SCFE is a common disease of adolescent and the epiphysis is usually positioned more posteromedially in relation to the femoral neck shaft with varus SCFE. Varus SCFE is not uncommon; however posterolateral displacement of the capital epiphysis, valgus SCFE, is uncommon. A definitive diagnosis can be difficult but there should be a high degree of clinical suspicion. We report a case of valgus SCFE in a 17-year-old boy with hypopituitarism.
