Osgood-Schlatter’s disease is one of the most common causes of knee pain in older children and adolescent athletes. It is the result of the traction by the patellar tendon on the centre of ossification of the anterior tibial tuberosity. Radiographic changes include condensation, fragmentation, appearance of ossicles and soft tissue edema. The treatment may be initiated by primary care pediatricians, including analgesia, stretching, quadriceps strengthening and modification of the sport.

Keywords: Osteochondrosis. Apophysitis tibialis. Osgood-Schlatter disease.
