Caption: MODEL RELEASED. Unequal length of legs in a 62 year old female patient, due to slipped capital femoral epiphysis (SCFE) at birth. SCFE is an unusual but not rare disorder of the thigh bone (femur) when the ball at the head of the femur slips off in a backward direction where it articulates with the hip bone. This leads to one leg being shorter than the other and the patient walks with a limp.
