Gluteus minimus disorders are a potential source of greater trochanteric or anterior hip pain. Disorders of the gluteus minimus tendon most commonly occur in conjunction with gluteus medius tendon abnormalities but can also occur in isolation. Understanding the sonoanatomy of the gluteus minimus muscle-tendon unit is a prerequisite for recognizing and characterizing gluteus minimus tendon disorders, which, in turn, guides treatment for patients with greater trochanteric or anterior hip pain syndromes.
