Abnormal Femoral Origin of the Anterior Cruciate Ligament Associated with Osteochondritis Dissecans of the Medial Femoral Condyle
Abstract: We report a case of abnormal meniscal-like anterior cruciate ligament (ACL), inserting at the 9 o’clock position just beside the cartilage of the lateral femoral condyle, in a stable knee associated with osteochondritis dissecans (OCD) of the medial femoral condyle.
