Fibroma of tendon sheath of the infrapatellar fat pad in the knee

      Abstract

      A 69-year-old patient with unexplained pain of the right knee reported no prior trauma. A soft tissue tumor was identified using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). The tumor showed low signal intensity on T1-weighted images, high signal intensity on T2, and peripheral enhancement on gadolinium-enhanced MRI. Perioperative observation revealed that the tumor was partly adhesive to the anterior knee joint capsule, but not to the patellar tendon.
