Abstract

Juvenile osteochondritis dissecans of the knee typically occurs in young athletes, and usually localizes on the medial femoral condyle. Bilateral localization is uncommon. Patellofemoral involvement is rare, mainly found in basketball and soccer players, and never related to patellofemoral congenital problems such as trochlear dysplasia. We report here the first case, to our knowledge, of bilateral juvenile osteochondritis dissecans with patellar localization in a young skier with patellofemoral maltracking and trochlear dysplasia.
