We present a patient who presented to the emergency department with a bisphosphonate-induced femoral fracture (BIFF). Clinical presentation, pathogenesis and management of BIFF are discussed. We also highlight the importance of imaging the contralateral femur, as these patients may need prophylactic surgical fixation of the contralateral femur.
