We report a case of a 24-year old female with Ischiofemoral impingement (IF). This pathology is a rare cause of groin or buttock pain due to the impingement of the quadratus femoris muscle between the lesser trochanter and the ischial tuberosity of the femur. A review of the literature identified 33 studies of IF. The diagnosis is dependent of imaging and clinical features. Treatment relies on conservative measures and infiltrations. If these measures fail, surgery should be considered. IF is clearly an underdiagnosed problem, the authors conclude that it is important to recognize and treat this pathology.
