Knee pain.

Patient Data

Age: 20 years
Gender: Male

MRI shows inflammatory changes near the anterior tibial tuberosity (pre-tibial edema, PD fat sat hyper signal) with bony fragmentation.

Minimal joint effusion.

Baker cyst measuring about 20*30 mm at posteromedial aspect of knee joint.

Case Discussion

MRI findings are compatible with Osgood-Schlatter disease in this young patient. Clinically, this condition was also suspected.

Osgood-Schlatter disease is a chronic fatigue injury due to repeated microtrauma at the patellar ligament insertion onto the tibial tuberosity.
