OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to review the diagnosis on MRI and radiography of 24 renal transplant recipients with hip pain suspicious for avascular necrosis and to investigate whether there is an association between kidney transplant patients with end-stage renal disease and symptomatic gluteus minimus and medius tendon abnormality. CONCLUSION: Symptomatic gluteus minimus and medius tendon lesions and abnormalities can occur in renal allograft recipients. The MRI findings of this entity allow an alternative diagnosis in this patient population.
