PMID:  16489475     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
We report a case of simultaneous rupture of the patellar tendon and the anterior cruciate ligament. This condition was rarely reported in the literature and clinical diagnosis can be difficult. It is frequently associated with injuries of other knee structures. The preferred treatment is immediate primary repair of the patellar tendon and delayed reconstruction of the anterior cruciate ligament.
