Abstract

In this report, we present a case of an uncommon coronal fracture of the femoral condyle, known as a Hoffa fracture. Classification of these injuries and commonly associated injuries are discussed. We describe previously proposed mechanisms of injury and review the current literature. The difficulty in establishing radiologic diagnosis on the basis of radiography exclusively is emphasized. Finally, current approaches to operative fixation are outlined.
