Abstract

A RARE CASE REPORT OF OCHRONOTIC ARTHRITIS WITH BILATERAL HIP INVOLVEMENT

*Dr. Mary Lilly and Dr. Susan D. P.

ABSTRACT

Alkaptonuric ochronosis is a rare autosomal recessive disorder of metabolism caused due to deficiency of homogentisic acid oxidase synthetase. Alkaptonuria leads to chronic inflammation, degeneration, and finally osteoarthritis. Ochronotic arthropathy is a rare condition caused in alkaptonuric patients. This case report discusses about a 64-year-old woman with alkaptonuric ochronosis who suffered from severe degenerative arthritis of left hip with a history of right hip ochronosis. Here we describe alkaptonuric ochronosis involving bilateral hip joints. This paper also involves the understanding of pathological epidemiology of bilateral hip involvement due to ochronosis.
