The condition is characterized by a snapping sound when moving the joint. It is most commonly observed in sports athletes or dancers, between the ages of 12 and 30. Three types of snapping can be distinguished, depending on the cause. With external snapping, the cause would typically be the iliotibial band sliding over the greater trochanter of the femur. An internal snapping usually means the iliopsoas is rubbing against the femoral head, the iliopectineal eminence, the iliopsoas bursa, or exostoses along the lesser femoral trochanter. Intraarticular snapping indicates the presence of loose bodies, synovial chondromatosis, or an injury like a torn acetabular labrum.

The condition could elicit pain. Oftentimes the patient can produce the snapping at will. It worsens with increased activity in the joint. Joint locking may also be present.
External snapping is more common than internal and can be seen with the naked eye during a physical exam. It can be felt via a palpation of the greater trochanter during hip joint flexion. Swelling of the fascia lata leads to reduced outward motion in the leg. Internal snapping is accompanied by a louder noise.

A diagnosis is reached with the aid of medical imaging.

Treatment can be conservative, with sets of exercises and drugs. A surgical operation may be needed, in some cases, to remove the trochanteric bursa. In rare cases, the joint is replaced with an endoprosthesis. An arthroscopy of the hip joint may be performed to treat a torn labrum or to remove loose bodies, if any are present.
