MUKANSI, SS; D'ALTON, EJ  e  GOLELE, RG. Stress fracture of the femoral neck (SFFN) as a consequence of an unusual occupation: A case report and review of the literature. SA orthop. j. [online]. 2014, vol.13, n.1, pp. 61-64. ISSN 2309-8309.

Stress fractures of the femoral neck are as old as mankind.1 They affect all ages, young and old. They mostly affect those who are physically active such as military recruits, athletes, especially marathon runners, as well as dancers. We are reporting a case of a femoral neck stress fracture in a 33-year-old male working as a pneumatic drill operator. See also Figure 1.

Palavras-chave : stress fractures; unusual occupation; repetitive force; fatigue; insufficiency.
