Abstract

The “risotto phenomenon” is a rare pathologic finding, mostly seen as a nonspecific response to chronic inflammation around the shoulder joint- subacromial and subdeltoid bursitis, rheumatoid arthritis, sero-negative inflammatory arthritis, septic arthritis and tuberculous arthritis. A few scientific reports associate rice body formation with the use of different type of osteosynthesis, bony anchors and bioabsorbable sutures. They are usually an incidental asymptomatic finding, requiring no specific treatment, but could be symptomatic demanding surgical excision. We present the clinical case of a 17-year- old female patient with a “risotto bursitis” of the great trochanter bursa, documented during planned surgical removal of a locking compression plate after proximal femoral varus osteotomy for bilateral developmental dysplasia of the hip treatment.
