Slipped upper femoral epiphysis (SUFE) is a relatively common adolescent hip disorder that represents a biomechanical instability of the proximal femoral growth plate. A link between vitamin D deficiency and SUFE has emerged in recent years; however, we present a unique case of a 10-year-old girl who presented with a reslip of a previously fixed SUFE with an associated vitamin D deficiency.
