Abstract

OBJECTIVE: This article presents the imaging findings of proximal tibiofibular joint disorders that can cause lateral knee pain. CONCLUSION: The proximal tibiofibular joint is often neglected in the evaluation of lateral knee pain. The images presented in this article highlight the diverse disorders of this area. Because this joint is usually in the field of view in radiography, CT, and MRI of the knee, evaluation of it should be a part of all knee imaging assessments.
