PMID:  2911769     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
This case illustrates the potential severity of an uncommon and generally benign condition of the knee--the Pellegrini-Stieda syndrome. The regional bone scan clearly showed the etiologic role of the inflamed ligamentous attachment site. Therapy should include joint rest, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory agents, and possibly ice for symptomatic relief.
