Most bipartite patellae are asymptomatic and observed only as an incidental finding when the knee is radiographed for other reasons. Although bipartite patella is usually asymptomatic, it can become painful in subjects following overuse or injury. Most of the patients with painful bipartite patella respond relatively well to nonsurgical treatment. When the pain is persistent and resistant to those conservative treatments, a certain type of surgical procedures can be applied. In this report, we present a case of symptomatic bipartite patella in a patient with no underlying disease.
