Ischiofemoral impingement is a syndrome defined by hip pain associated with narrowing of the space between ischial tuberosity and lesser trochanter. This phenomenon leads to abnormalities of the quadratus femoris muscle, ranging from deformity and edema to tears and atrophy. This review article presents an up-to-date discussion and imaging findings of ischiofemoral impingement, along with its related anatomy, clinical presentation, differential diagnosis and treatment.
