    Trochanteritis, also called trochanteric bursitis (TB), is a term used to describe a chronic and intermittent pain located on the face lateral of the hip. Your clinical characteristics are similar to other conditions among those that include myofascial pain, osteoarthritis and / or certain diseases of the spinal region. Due to the different causes of pain in the greater trochanter, they were generally referred to as trochanteric syndrome. However, since two decades it is known as pain syndrome of the greater trochanter (PSGT), which encompasses a whole series of entitys which give rise to a localized pain in the external part of the hip, mainly on the PSGT, and that do not necessarily have an origin inflammatory. The treatment is based in the administration of NSAIDs, infiltrations with corticosteroids and rehabilitation. However, not all patients benefit from these treatments, employing other therapeutic measures, including surgical, without any of them having managed to be the only treatment method for all cases. In the present article a review is made of the subject, both from the physiopathological point of view and diagnostic and therapeutic.
