We present 3 patients followed at our institution for developmental hip dysplasia for an average of 20 years. Each patient underwent a Pemberton pelvic osteotomy for developmental hip dysplasia and remained symptom-free during childhood. All 3, however, returned as young adults at an average 12 years from surgery with delayed onset of ipsilateral hip pain associated with a damaged labrum. The purpose of this report is to describe the late presentation of 3 symptomatic young adults with a history of childhood pelvic osteotomy. All the 3 patients were subsequently diagnosed with and successfully treated for symptomatic acetabular labral damage. All patients were informed that data concerning their case would be submitted for publication.
