Before surgery, it was important to investigate the nature of the fracture as the treatment differed accordingly. The patient was investigated with MRI and following acute caesarean section a PET-CT scan was performed with no proof of malignancy. An undetectable low level of vitamin D and the pathology report determined the cause of the fracture to be transient osteoporosis of pregnancy. The patient received a total hip arthroplasty and was referred to further treatment at a department of endocrinology.
