Hi, my 13 yo brother has been having severe hip pain and the consulted doctor has diagnosed as a case of transient synovitis. This happened 6 months back as well, and got better in 3-4 days. However, this time, its been over a week without respite. Is there a possibility of soemthing else? There has been no fever, only hip pain while walking resulting in limping an lot of discomfort.

Hello...The disease causes arthralgia and arthritis secondary to a transient inflammation of the synovium of the hip.its diagnosed excluding other possible causes like septic arthritis ,osteomyelitis....it might not be transient synovitis this time .. More over it will not stay for longer period of time... Consult orthopedic surgeon.
