Is it true that someone with hip retroversion cannot get piriformis syndrome on that side?

In brief: Less likely

With retroversion of the upper aspect of the femur the piriformis is relaxed during routine ambulation and therefore there is less chance for irritation that would result in symptoms consistent with piriformis syndrome.
