Bottom Line: Intra articular Coronal fracture of the femoral condyle (Hoffa) is rare-especially that of medial condyle.At follow- up of 8-month functional score was excellent with normal flexion, an absence of laxity, an absence of pain and an unlimited market.Through a review of the literature the mechanism, the diagnostic methods and therapeutic will be analysed.

ABSTRACT
Intra articular Coronal fracture of the femoral condyle (Hoffa) is rare-especially that of medial condyle. We report the case of a patient who had a bilateral Hoffa fracture of the medial condyles (type 33 - B3, Orthopaedic Trauma Association) occurred as a result of an accident at work (worker mover). Lesions were treated with the functional and orthopaedic approach. At follow- up of 8-month functional score was excellent with normal flexion, an absence of laxity, an absence of pain and an unlimited market. Through a review of the literature the mechanism, the diagnostic methods and therapeutic will be analysed.

Because of the pain we had sought signs of laxity. The initial AP and lateral x-rays showed a bilateral Coronal fracture of the medial condyle (left and right knee: Figure 2, Figure 3). The scanner showed Coronal fractures type Hoffa of the two medial condyles left and right associated with a fracture of the left tibia plateau (Figure 4, Figure 5).
