Absent anterior cruciate ligament

Author
Organization
Abstract
This case report presents the MRI findings of aplasia of the anterior cruciate ligament with associated hypoplasia of the posterior cruciate ligament (Manner type 2). Radiographically the presence of a shallow femoral notch and hypoplastic tibial spines (the so-called "dromedar" sign) can aid in the diagnosis. Operative treatment is often not indicated since the congenital absence of the ACL implies long-standing altered biomechanics to which the knee has well adapted in the majority of cases.
