Incidental Anterior Cruciate Ligament Calcification: Case Report

Incidental Anterior Cruciate Ligament Calcification: Case Report

Hisami Hayashi, Hans Fischer

Abstract


The calcification of knee ligaments is a finding noted only in a handful of case reports. The finding of an anterior cruciate ligament calcification has been reported once in the literature. Comparable studies involving the posterior cruciate ligament, medial collateral ligament and an ossicle within the anterior cruciate ligament are likewise discussed in reports of symptomatic patients. We report a case of incidentally discovered anterior cruciate ligament calcification. We discuss the likely etiology and clinical implications of this finding.
