ABSTRACT

Diagnosis: Osgood-Schlatter Disease

History: 14yo Caucasian male with 2 day history of pain, swelling, and tenderness over the left anterior tibial tuberosity. No history of trauma.

Findings: The lateral view of the left knee reveals irregular ossification of the anterior tibial tuberosity, abnormal width of the distal portion of the apophyseal plate, calcifications within the distal patellar tendon, and indistinctness of the patellar tendon. Soft tissue swelling localized to a prominence over the tibial tuberosity is present as well, although this is difficult to visualize secondary to the higher penetration. The remainder of the views of the left knee are normal.

Exam: Swelling and tenderness over the left anterior tibial tuberosity.

No MeSH data available.
