Abstract

This case report describes greater trochanteric pain syndrome (often referred to as trochanteric bursitis) in a patient with multiple sclerosis (MS). It is a relatively common and treatable cause of hip pain in patients with several underlying conditions. It is probably underdiagnosed in MS where other causes of pain, particularly neurogenic, are so often assumed.
