Legg-Calvé-Perthes disease, or just Perthes disease, is characterized by idiopathic osteonecrosis of the proximal femoral epiphysis. It is an exclusion diagnosis and other causes of osteonecrosis should be discarded.
The disease is usually unilateral, but in the present case, there is bilateral Perthes disease.
