Osteitis pubis is a painful, non-infectious inflammatory condition of the symphysis pubis and surrounding adjacent structures. It should be kept in mind in the differential diagnosis of lower pelvic pain and should be sought in cases of pelvic insufficiency fractures. In this paper, we present a case of a 65-year-old man with osteitis pubis following prostatectomy for benign prostatic hypertrophy and we review pathophysiology, diagnosis and management of this rare condition.

Keywords : Osteitis pubis, pelvic insufficiency fracture
