Abstract: A Morel-Lavallee Lesion (MLL) is a closed traumatic soft tissue degloving injury characterized by separation of the dermis from the underlying fascia due to a shearing force often seen in the polytrauma patient with underlying pelvis or proximal femoral fractures. This process leads to the development of a potential space in which fatty tissue, blood and necrotic debris can collect and can potentially result in abscesses, cellulitis, or osteomyelitis. Most of these cases have predilection for the greater trochanter, gluteal musculature at hip, proximal femur and around the knee. Here, we present a case of a morel lavallee lesion in left hip in a 24 year old male who presented to us with a cystic swelling in left hip and its further management.
