The authors report 7 anatomo-clinical cases of osteonecrosis of the femoral head, the clinical onset of which occurred during pregnancy or in the fortnight after delivery. On the basis of histological data obtained through core-biopsy in these 7 cases they discuss the relationship between osteonecrosis and reflex sympathetic dystrophy of the hip.
