M06.45: Inflammatory polyarthropathy Pelvic region and thigh

You have an inflamed joint in your pelvis or your hip.

The pelvis consists of two large pelvic bones. A joint connects these pelvic bones to the sacrum at the back of the body. The sacral spine is the bottom part of the spine. The two pelvic bones plus the sacrum form a bony pelvic ring or girdle. In front, the two pelvic bones are tightly joined to one another by ligaments and cartilage fiber. The hip joint connects the pelvis to the thighbone (femur). The hip joint is located to the outside of the pelvis.

An inflammation in the joints can cause various symptoms. Typical is a swollen, painful joint. The skin above the joint may also be red. It may also no longer be possible to move the joint as usual.
