Abstract: Sickle cell disease (SCD) is the commonest cause of avascular necrosis (AVN) among teenagers in our environment. When diagnosed early, joint preserving operations and physical therapy may prolong the congruency of the hip joint. However, due to the sociocultural behavior and the disequilibrium in universal health system in our sub region, the affected population often gets to the orthopaedic surgeons with advanced stage of the pathology affecting activities of daily living and carrier progression.

Abstract: The SARS-Cov-2 virus causes a broad range of symptoms, including in the musculoskeletal system. Children who are infected with the virus usually have mild to moderate symptoms but can develop a clinical picture termed “multisystem inflammatory syndrome in children and adolescents with COVID-19 (MIS-C)”. Joint involvement in this syndrome is infrequent and poorly characterized. We present what we believe to be the first well-documented case of arthritis of the small joints of the hands in a child with an otherwise typical case of MIS-C and give a short review of the literature.

Abstract: The prevalence of periprosthetic humeral fractures is 0.6% to 3%. These periprosthetic fractures are very challenging to treat because of the risk of complications and reduced function, especially when the humeral implant needs to be changed. The aim of this study was to evaluate the possibility of stabilizing the fracture without removing the existing humeral stem.
