The right lower limb is noticeably shorter than the left.The right limb is externally rotated, and the patient is unable to changethe limb's position without considerable pain.On palpation, the groin is tender ,but no swelling is obvious.Passive movement of the hip causes extreme pain, especially upon external and internal rotation. WBC is 0000/mm^3. Hgb is 9.8gm/dl
