Abstract

Slipped capital femoral epiphyses (SCFEs) can be idiopathic or atypical (associated with renal failure, radiation therapy, and endocrine disorders). The demographics of 433 children (285 idiopathic, 148 atypical) with 612 SCFEs were studied to define predictors of atypical SCFEs. Multiple logistic regression analysis showed that age and weight were predictors. For two patients of equal weight, those younger than 10 or older than 16 years of age were 4.2 times more likely to have an atypical SCFE; for two patients of equal age, those
