Pain in the groin without any history of trauma or positive clinical findings of infection or stress fracture in ischiopubic ramus poses challenges in diagnosis of the condition in prepubertal age. “Osteochondrosis of ischiopubic synchondrosis (IPS)” also called “Van Neck-Odelberg” disease. Left leg dominant patient presented with pain in groin and limping with left leg dominance. Differential diagnosis – such as stress fractures, osteomyelitis, tuberculosis, post-traumatic osteolysis or any neoplasia is need be ruled out to arrive at a diagnosis. A 12-year-old left limb dominant boy with tenderness in the right groin as the only clinical finding and sclerotic shadow over the ischiopubic region on X-ray posed a challenge for diagnosis. With further studies by computed tomography and magnetic resonance, imaging diagnosis was done. Hence, we are presenting a case labeled as Van Neck-Odelberg disease.
