Brief Summary:
This is a observation clinical trial. We are collecting the patients with glucocorticoid. They were divided into the experiment group (with femur head necrosis) and control group (without femur head necrosis).Then, we will analyse the patients' genome with genome-wide association study (GWAS). Our purpose is to find susceptibility loci for glucocorticoid-induced femur head necrosis in the Chinese population.

The patients of necrosis group was defined by a history of taking 1800 mg prednisolone or an equivalent over 4 week without the symptom of femur head necrosis after 1 year.
The patients of necrosis group was defined by a history of taking 1800 mg prednisolone or an equivalent over 4 week with the diagnosis of femur head necrosis.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Glucocorticoid-induced femur head necrosis [ Time Frame: 1 year ]
    Hip joint MRI for the patients with a history of taking 1800 mg prednisolone or an equivalent over 4 week.

Biospecimen Retention:   Samples With DNA
We will collect 4ml whole blood samples under the consent of patient and extract the genome from the samples. During the process the blood samples will be collected strickly according the international guide clinical blood specimen collection.
