One thousand six hundred thirty children with 1993 slipped capital femoral epiphyses were reviewed ; 41.2% were girls and 58.8% were boys.
There were 47.5% white, 24.8% black, 16.9% Amerindian, 7.4% Indonesian-Malay, 2.1% Native Australian/Pacific Islands, and 1.3% Indo-Mediterranean children.
The diseased hip was unilateral in 77.7% and bilateral in 22.3% of the children, and chronic in 85.5% and acute in 14.5% of the children.
Of the unilateral slips, 40.3% involved the right hip and 59.7% the left hip.
The child's weight was greater than or equal to the ninetieth percentile in 63.2% of the children.
The average age for the girls and boys was 12 and 13.5 years.
The age at diagnosis decreased with increasing obesity.
The youngest children were the Native Australian/Pacific Island children (11.8 years) and the oldest were the white and Indo-Mediterranean children (13 years).
The Indonesian-Malay and Indo-Mediterranean children were the lightest in weight, and the black children the heaviest.
The Indo-Mediterranean children had the highest proportion of boys (90.5%), and the Native Australian/Pacific Island children the lowest (50%). The highest percentage of bilaterality was in the Native Australian/Pacific Island children (38.2%), and the lowest in the Amerindian children (16.5%). The relative racial frequency of slipped capital femoral epiphysis compared with the white population was 4.5 for the Polynesian, 2.2 for the black, 1.05 for the Amerindian, 0.5...
