Abstract: Slipped capital femoral epiphysis is an uncommon condition seen in adolescents before the onset of the growth spurt. When it occurs in a different age-group, some endocrinopathy should be suspected. We describe 2 cases occurring in adulthood where there is associated hypopituitarism. In addition, the endocrine influence on the physeal plate is discussed.
