Abstract 

Slipped Capital Femoral Epiphysis is a common paediatric hip disease and the incidence is on rise over the years. Various epidemiological factors have been associated with it and there is also a trend of changing patterns with respect age of presentation and pathomechanics. This article primarily reviews the epidemiology, aetiology, pathomechanics and outcomes in slipped capital femoral epiphysis.

Keywords: Slipped capital femoral epiphysis, epidemiology, Pathomechanics
