Osgood-Schlatter disease

Case contributed by Dr Maxime St-Amant

Presentation

Knee pain.

Patient Data

Age: 12
Gender: Male
MRI

MRI shows inflammatory changes near the anterior tibial tuberosity (pre-tibial edema, T2 FATSAT hypersignal, etc.) with bony fragmentation, compatible with Osgood-Schlatter disease in this young patient. Clinically, this condition was also suspected.

This is an example of acute Osgood-Schlatter disease.

Case Discussion

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