Multiple hereditary exostoses also known as diaphyseal aclasias, most common benign bone disorder in children, is an autosomal dominant genetic disorder with complete penetrance, with an incidence of 1:50,000 individuals comm only occurring along the metaphysic of the long bones1. Proximal femur is affected in approximately 90% of individuals associated with growth disturbance, acetabular dysplasia and possible subluxation10. We report a case of multiple hereditary exostoses with proximal femur lesion treated by ganz surgical dislocation and have analysed the effectiveness of this procedure in restoring hip morphology.
