Abstract

Sleeve fractures are generally restricted to children or adolescents, and usually occur at the lower patella pole. Here we report on a superior pole sleeve fracture in an adult that occurred following forceful passive physiotherapy after cast immobilization. To our knowledge, this is the first report of a superior pole sleeve fracture in an otherwise healthy adult. The case highlighted that a diagnosis of a superior patella pole sleeve fracture in an adult can easily be missed because it is a rare injury, and hence is unlikely to be suspected by physicians.
