Özet

Background/aim: Avascular necrosis (AVN) is the death of bone due to compromise of blood flow. The etiology of AVN is multifactorial; corticosteroid usage is the second most significant factor after trauma, and systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is the most common underlying disease. The objective of this study was to assess the factors of AVN in SLE patients.
