Introduction: A 37 year-old male was incidentally diagnosed to have an acetabular osteophyte on X rays performed at the Emergency Room, while a hip injury was ruling out after a car accident. The radiological findings and differential diagnosed are briefly discussed. An informed consent was signed by the patient for publication and academic purposes.

Keywords: Acetabular osteophyte; Ostheoartrosis; Hip; Femoro-acetabular impingement
