Transient osteoporosis of pregnancy is a rarely observed skeletal pathology developing in the last months of pregnancy. Meticulous evaluation is important for the differential diagnosis of severe and progressive hip and/or groin pain in pregnant patients. MRI is a valuable and safe technique for demonstrating bone marrow edema and skeletal abnormalities during pregnancy. Avoidance of vaginal delivery and non-weight bearing measures are essential in order to prevent complications such as hip fractures related to transient osteoporosis of pregnancy. We present the diagnostic evaluation and treatment of an uncommon case of transient osteoporosis of pregnancy with resolution of symptoms and postpartum.
