Trochanteric syndrome (greater trochanteric pain syndrome) refers to pain that originates from the lateral hip region.
Bursitis is not necessarily present and the often-used term trochanteric bursitis is therefore not always appropriate 1.
Trochanteric syndrome most commonly affects middle-aged females 3.
Conditions that can present as trochanteric syndrome include 3:
