Author(s):

Rajesh Paul, Nitish Choudhary, Abhishek Samuel

Abstract:

Case: We report a case of massive pre patellar bursitis in a 13-year-old boy treated with a two-stage procedure. Conclusion: Massive pre patellar bursitis is a rare occurrence in children. Diagnosis can be made with comprehensive clinical and radiological assessment. We suggest a complete excision of the posterior wall of the bursal sac in a staged manner with Vacuum assisted wound closure, which exempts the need to sacrifice the anterior skin over the knee and decreases the associated wound complications.
