Traumatic myositis ossificans is a proliferative benign process, where a metaplasia of soft tissue to bone occurs. The aim of this paper is to present the case of a 17-year-old male patient, diagnosed with traumatic myositis ossificans in both hips. Despite the rarity of this disease, its frecuency may increasedue to the increase in high energy trauma secondary to traffic accidents. We also present the literature review on this topic.
