The usual definition of slipped capital femoral epiphysis SCFE is a postero-inferior slip of the femoral head relative to the neck in an overweight adolescent. Its prevalence has increased sharply and progresses with body mass index BMI as a function of age. The current classification is clinical, describing two features, stable or unstable SCFE, related to the risk of osteonecrosis. Radiological exploration has three phases. First, diagnosis is hampered by the nonspecific initial symptoms and the subtle radiological signs. Well-trained radiologists can establish the diagnosis at the pre-slip stage.

L'Epiphysiolyse de la Hanche
Slipped capital femoral epiphysis SFCE is a disorder of the hip, characterized by a displacement of the capital femoral epiphysis from the metaphysic through the femoral growth plate. The epiphysis slips posteriorly and inferiorly. SCFE occurs during puberty and metabolic and epidemiologic risk factors, such as obesity are frequently found. Most chronic slips are diagnosed late.
