Abstract

An aneurysmal bone cyst is rare in the patella. We report the case of a 9 year-old boy who presented with chronic pain and no previous trauma
history. Treatment included curettage of the cyst and filling with a iliac bone graft. Ten months after surgery, the knee was mobile and painless
and graft incorporation was good.

Key words: Patellar, aneurysm, cyst, bone, children
