2) Causes of avascular necrosis of the femoral head in adults Systemic steroids and alcohol are well-recognised causes of AVN in adults, but conditions associated with hypercoaguable states such as systemic lupus erythematosus, antiphospholipid syndrome, sickle cell disease, primary coagulopathies and metabolic disorders such as diabetes need to be considered.
