oa Journal of Endocrinology, Metabolism and Diabetes in South Africa - Atypical femoral fractures : case study
A 73-year-old female patient with osteoporosis, who had been taking alendronate for over 15 years, sustained bilateral, atypical femoral fractures two years apart. There was evidence of a stress fracture preceding the current fracture, as seen in the X-rays performed two years prior. Subsequently, she was found to have primary hyperparathyroidism.
