Abstract:

Acetabular labral tear is an uncommon cause of hip pain in the skeletally immature athlete. Treatment outcomes have mostly been described in the surgical literature. We present a case report of a premenarchal 12-year-old figure skater who was diagnosed with an isolated acetabular labral tear without hip deformity. With nonoperative treatment, she was able to return to pain-free competitive figure skating 4 months after her onset of symptoms. Our findings suggest that acetabular labral tears in the skeletally immature athlete can respond to a trial of nonoperative management.
