Last revised by Francis Fortin on 18 Sep 2020

A double-layered patella (DLP) is a rare form of bipartite patella.

It is a congenital anomaly which presents with multiple fragmented patellae with smooth, well-corticated borders. A double-layered patella is considered pathognomonic for multiple epiphyseal dysplasia.1
