One of the most common knee injuries is ligament tear, which may initially manifest as an osseous injury in radiographs. Radiologists should therefore be able to recognize ligament tears of the knee as osseous abnormalities in images. This review focuses on the imaging features of knee ligament injuries and their related osseous injuries: anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tear with Segond fracture; associated marrow contusion; ACL avulsion fracture; posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) tear with osseous avulsion of the ligament including arcuate sign; reverse Segond fracture; PCL avulsion fracture; medial collateral ligament tear with Pellegrini-Stieda disease; lateral collateral ligament tear with avulsion fracture of the fibular head; and patellar ligament injuries with Osgood-Schlatter and Sinding-Larsen-Johansson...

The most common cause of adolescent heel pain is calcaneal apophysitis also known as Sever's disease. The condition may occur in adolescent athletes, particularly those involved in running or jumping activities, during the pubertal growth spurt. The mean age of presentation in Sever's disease is ten, (range 7-15). It presents with posterior heel pain that is worse with activity and relieved by rest in most cases. Sever's disease, Osgood Schlatter's disease (tibial tuberosity) and Sinding-Larsen Johansson syndrome (distal patella) are all overuse syndromes brought about by repetitive submaximal loading and microtrauma...

Athletes sometimes experience overuse injuries. To diagnose these injuries, ultrasonography is often more useful than plain radiography, computed tomography (CT), or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Ultrasonography can show both bone and soft tissue from various angles as needed, providing great detail in many cases. In conditions such as osteochondrosis or enthesopathies such as Osgood-Schlatter disease, Sinding-Larsen-Johansson disease, bipartite patella, osteochondritis dissecans of the knee, painful accessory navicular,and jumper's knee, ultrasonography can reveal certain types of bony irregularities or neovascularization of the surrounding tissue...

OBJECTIVE: To investigate the prevalence of osteochondrosis in children and adolescent soccer players. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A questionnaire was distributed to players of all 113 junior soccer teams participating in a regional summer championship in August 2012 inquiring about pain in the body during or after training or a match. Physical examination of the lumbar spine or legs was recommended to players who complained of pain on the questionnaire, and for those who had positive findings on the physical examination, radiographic or ultrasonic examination at our hospital was recommended...

Lower limb traction apophysitis is common in young athletes, occurring at sites such as the tibial tubercle (Osgood-Schlatter disease) and distal patella (Sinding-Larsen-Johansson disease). Around the hip, iliac apophysitis is well recognized, but no cases of greater trochanter apophysitis have previously been reported. We describe the case of a 15-year-old male basketball player with a 2-month history of the right hip pain and significant functional limitation. X-rays revealed widening of the greater trochanter apophysis with subchondral sclerosis, consistent with a diagnosis of traction apophysitis...

Overload syndromes are caused by repetitive microtrauma, and the knee joint is most frequently affected in adolescents. The reason for this is that the knee joint is engaged in almost all sports activities. Pathologies related to the anterior aspect of the knee are: femoropatellar pain, jumper's knee syndromes, Osgood-Schlatter disease, Sinding-Larsen-Johansson syndrome and patellar stress fractures; to the medial aspect: semimembranous tendon enthesopathy and pes anserinus bursitis; to the lateral aspect: iliotibial band syndrome (runner's knee), popliteus and femoral biceps tendon enthesopathy; to the posterior aspect: fabella syndrome and medial gastrocnemius muscle tendon enthesopathy...

Osgood-Schlatter disease is one of the most common causes of knee pain in active adolescents. It is a generally benign disturbance at the junction of the patellar tendon and the tibial tubercle apophysis, and treatment during its 12- to 24-month course should be matched to severity. Mild symptoms require only patient education and moderation of activity, but severe symptoms call for a period of rest (or, rarely, immobilization) followed by aggressive quadriceps strengthening. Other conditions such as Sinding-Larsen-Johansson disease may occur simultaneously, and long-term effects can include a prominence on the anterior knee or painful kneeling...

We examined radiographs of the inferior pole of the patella in seven juvenile athletes diagnosed as having Sinding-Larsen-Johansson disease (SLJD) and discussed the etiology of the syndrome. Eight knees had tenderness at the inferior pole of the patella accompanied by radiographic abnormalities. A regular or irregular calcification was found at the inferior pole of the patella in three knees; coalescence of the calcification was found in two knees; incorporation of the calcification into the patella to yield a normal radiographic configuration of the area was found in two knees; and a small calcification separated from the patella was found in one knee...

The knee is an intricate joint with numerous tendinous, ligamentous, and meniscal attachments, which make it particularly vulnerable to complex injuries after trauma. A variety of avulsion fractures of the knee can occur, including Segond and reverse Segond fractures; avulsions of the anterior and posterior cruciate ligaments; arcuate complex avulsion; iliotibial band avulsion; avulsions of the biceps femoris, semimembranosus, and quadriceps tendons; Sinding-Larsen-Johansson syndrome; and Osgood-Schlatter disease...

The skeletally immature athlete poses unique problems in diagnosis and treatment of injuries to the extensor mechanism of the knee. An accurate and detailed history and physical examination of the knee are essential for making a specific diagnosis and formulating an appropriate treatment plan. This article presents an overview of acute and chronic injuries of the extensor mechanism of the knee that are unique to skeletally immature athletes. The subjects of femoral trochlear dysplasia and medial subluxation of the patella are briefly discussed...

Two cases of osteochondrosis of the superior pole of the patella are reported with histologic findings. Both patients were young girls; one had mild cerebral palsy. Sixteen cases of this disorder have been documented but without histologic study. The histologic features of these two cases showed osteonecrosis with reparative changes. These findings support that this entity is similar to other osteochondroses of the quadriceps mechanism: Osgood-Schlatter disease and Sinding-Larsen-Johansson disease.

We experienced a patient with a combination of multiple osteochondroses: Blount's disease, bipartite patella, and Sinding-Larsen-Johansson disease in the left knee, and a combination of bipartite patella and Osgood-Schlatter disease in the right knee. The patient was a healthy, active 12-year-old boy with bilateral knee pain. He had been diagnosed with Blount's disease of the left tibia at 2 years of age, and had been treated with open wedge osteotomy. He was diagnosed with bilateral bipartite patellae at the age of 9 years, and was diagnosed with Osgood-Schlatter disease in the right knee and Sinding-Larsen-Johansson disease in the left knee at 10 years of age...

Transverse stress fracture of the patella in a child is an exceptional injury in childhood. Only one case has been previously reported. The present study reports a new case of a 12-year-old boy with anterior knee pain misdiagnosed for 5 months as Sinding-Larsen-Johansson disease who developed sudden anterior right knee pain and pop while running in a soccer match. Surgery was performed. The evolution was favorable without any immobilization required and the patient achieved full recovery.

Parapatellar pain is a common complaint in the active adolescent patient population. Patello-femoral pain syndrome, Osgood-Schlatter disease, Sinding-Larsen-Johansson syndrome, patellar tendinitis, and other stress failure conditions are the primary causes of these parapatellar symptoms. Not all cases of knee discomfort are related to knee pathology. This case study discusses hip pathology as a source of referred knee pain in an 8-year-old male athlete. Care must be taken to evaluate all possible sources of both primary and referred pain in all cases...
