Symptomatic Bipartite Patella- MRI & CT

It is a common congenital fragmentation or synchondrosis of the patella. It occurs in approximately 1% of population but some have observed a much higher incidence; most remain asymptomatic, but direct trauma may disrupt the synchondroses, causing symtoms that mimic those of fracture. Symptomatic cases are identified on MRI with marrow edema as in our case of a 11 yr old with pain for last 6 months. Second opinion- Teleradiology Providers
