Slipped capital femoral epiphysis (SCFE) is a hip problem that begins when part of the growing end (the epiphysis) of the thighbone (femur) slips off from the top of the thighbone. SCFE may develop in 1 leg or both. Usually it is a gradual, slow process, but may be sudden if it is caused by a trauma, such as a fall.
