There is a mild posteroinferior sliding of the left proximal femoral epiphysis with widening and irregularity of the growth plate, blurring of the physeal edges and focal area of metaphyseal demineralization.
Note a focal bone bridge formation crossing the growth plate.
The right side appears normal.
Case of a slipped upper femoral epiphysis with growth plate bridge. The focal osseous bridge is certainly due to the previous trauma within the growth plate.
