Limp or refusal to walk in children

This article refers mainly to children up to young school age, i.e. children who are too young to reliably localise their symptoms.Conditions that are suitable to be treated in primary care are minor injuries of toddlers, transient (aseptic) synovitis of the hip in a child of preschool age and usually hairline fractures.Conditions that must be immediately recognized and referred for specialist care are e.g. bacterial infections of the bone or joint, leukaemia, hip epiphysiolysis and suspicion of physical abuse, as well as all children with bone or joint symptoms who also present with general symptoms.
