oneurosis flap originated. The patient has resumed          her former level of activity without symptoms.
A roentgenogram     made immediately      after surgery (Fig. 5) showed the enlargement       of the iliac defect
and     the    ground       bone         near   the   superior   edge     of remaining         ilium.   At    one    year    after   surgery,       a roent-
genogram          of the        pelvisshowed consolidation                    of the ground         bone     (Fig.   6).    Subsequemst         roemstgeno-
grams         showed      essentially    no further change.
