Aneurysmal bone cysts (ABCs) are uncommon lesions accounting for less than 1% of reported primary bone tumors.   Of all the ABCs occurring in the body, less than 1% are seen in the patella. We report an extremely rare case of ABC of the right patella in a 20-year-old male patient who presented to our hospital with pain and swelling in the right knee since 4 months. Radiograph and computerised tomography (CT) scan were suggestive of osteolytic lesion involving whole of the patella without soap bubble appearance and with thinning of articular cortex. Whole of patella was involved. Patient was managed with total patellectomy and quadriceps and patellar tendon approximation and suturing. Physiotherapy and mobilization started. Patient was followed for 4 years with painless full range of movement, with no signs of local recurrence. Level of clinical evidence - 4 (highlight Query)
