Abstract

Patellar sleeve fracture is a form of injury in which small osseous fragments avulsed with periosteum and cartilage. 15-year-old male patient, playing in school football team, apllied to our clinic with a history of previously missed patellar superior pole sleeve avulsion fracture. Care must be taken in order not to miss the patellar superior pole sleeve fractures, which are very rare in children. Extra care must be taken in patients, whose X-ray imaging is clean but there is a problem in the extensor mechanism of the knee. INTRODUCTION Since the patella has high mobility and large cartilage surfaces, it's fracture is very rare in children (9). Growing patella is more prone to osteochondral or avulsion fractures (8). Patellar sleeve fracture is a form of injury in which small osseous fragments fractured with periosteum and cartilage (5). Avulsion or sleeve fractures of patella can be seen in inferior and superior patellar poles. Fractures in superior pole is very rare and only a few cases have been described in the literature (2).
