BRUZZESE, Juan Pablo; HARRETCHE, Gonzalo; PORCELLI, Daniel  and  RODRIGUEZ, Claudio. Multiple osteonecrosis induced bye glucocorticoids. Anfamed [online]. 2023, vol.10, n.2, e303.  Epub Dec 01, 2023. ISSN 2301-1254.

Multiple osteonecrosis is a rare entity that is defined by the involvement of at least three different regions. A multidisciplinary approach to patients who suffer from it is essential for both diagnosis and timely treatment.

We present the clinical case of a young patient who presented multiple osteonecrosis with involvement of both hips, shoulders, knees, right elbow, and neck of the left foot. The main risk factor present in our case is the consumption of glucocorticoids.

Keywords : Osteonecrosis; multiple osteonecrosis; glucocorticoids; young patient; arthroplasty.
