Abstract: Stress fractures of the femoral neck are uncommon and may go unnoticed at first. Stress fractures are most commonly seen in athletes as overuse injuries. A 49 year old house wife presenting with continuous right knee pain aggravated by physical activity was diagnosed as Fullerton and Snowdy type two neck of femur stress fracture and was treated conservatively. If a stress fracture is not treated, it might deteriorate. It can cause poor healing, and even require surgery. Timely management is the key.
