The patient was a 25-year-old male who was currently enrolled in a military security forces training program. He had a 1-month history of worsening left anterior hip pain that was insidious in nature and limiting his ability to run. History and physical examination findings led to the possibility of femoral neck stress fracture. Radiography of the left hip was obtained, which revealed a stress fracture of the left femoral neck. The patient underwent open reduction internal fixation of the left hip. After a period of convalescence and completion of a comprehensive rehabilitation program, the patient successfully returned to full military duty without limitations.
