PMID: 33163608.


Osteitis pubis (OP) is an inflammatory condition of the symphysis pubis (SP) characterized by focal pain and local tenderness. Pelvic instability (PI) is commonly associated with this condition. It is still not clear if OP leads to PI or it is PI that leads to OP. The exact cause of osteitis pubis is not yet known, although several predisposing factors have been suggested to contribute to this condition. In most cases, it is self-remitting and rarely needs surgical intervention.
