Author information

Department of Athletic Medicine, University of California, Berkeley, CA, USA.


Osteitis pubis in athletes is an inflammatory condition of the pubic symphysis and surrounding muscular insertions. It is of uncertain etiology, however, and is seen particularly in those sports requiring sprinting and sudden changes of direction. There is a paucity of literature of this condition occurring in players of American football. This report presents two such cases and details proposed etiology and a specific management protocol.
