Figure 1

Computed Tomography (CT) scan image of the patient’s left knee at the time of presentation. (A) Sagittal CT scan image shows a 2.8 × 1.2 cm conical ossification of the proximal patellar tendon (arrows). It is present hyperdense material within the tibial tunnel attributable to a resorbable screw. (B) Transverse CT scan image at the joint space level shows patellar tendon ossification (1.5 × 1.2 cm) at the patellar tip (arrows). (C) CT 3D reconstruction images show the proximal and the distal patellar tendon ossification morphology (arrows).
