Abstract

Cystic bone lesions are the result of various pathological mechanisms. They are usually asymptomatic and can be differentiated on the basis of localisation and typical radiological features in most cases. We present the case of a 47-year-old male patient with a subchondral bone cyst of the lateral femoral condyle which was identified as an intraosseous ganglion following ACL reconstruction. Due to the increasing size of the bone cyst, the possibility of fracture to the overlying cartilage could not be excluded. Complete bony healing of the intraosseous ganglion with stabilisation of the surrounding cartilage could be achieved by combined autologous bone grafting and osteochondral autograft transfer system (OATS).
