PMID:  19159519     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Absence of patella may be caused by congenital factors, trauma and surgical operations (patellectomy, etc). Complete absence of bilateral patellae is rare in clinical case. We report a case of posttraumatic bilateral patella excision. To the best of our knowledge, absence of bilateral patellae caused by self-mutilation has never been reported. Our patient and his family members were informed that the data concerning this case would be submitted for publication.
