Jobert's fossa

An older term for a short groove located between the distal adductor magnus muscle anteriorly, and the sartorius and gracilis muscles posteriorly, seen when the thigh is flexed and the thigh rotated laterally. While the term is little used in the working medical parlance, it may continue to serve some clinical utility.
