Transient Synovitis

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 , might not be transient synovitis this time .. More over it will not stay for longer period of time... Consult orthopedic surgeon.
