Perthes Association

We aim to help and advise families of children suffering from Perthes' disease and associated conditions in all parts of the British Isles and abroad.

Perthes disease (a potentially crippling disease of the hip) is a form of osteochondritis, which affects 5.5 per 100,000 children (mainly boys) between the ages of 2 and 15 years.
