Abstract
Spontaneous intrapelvic masses causing vascular compression raise the suspi cion of a neoplasm or infection. We present a patient who developed a recur rent intrapelvic cyst 14 years after a McKee-Farrar total hip arthroplasty which presented as acute onset of lower limb swelling, threatening the vasc ularity of the limb. This cyst recurred three times, and the patient finall y needed revision total hip arthroplasty. The most probable cause of the re currence was the cement and metal wear debris. Such cysts have been describ ed in the literature, but to the best of our knowledge, this is the only re port that describes it complicating a metal-on-metal prosthesis.
