Osgood-Schlatter disease

A knee disorder most common in early adolescent boys. It is caused by repetitive tension on the upper part of the front of the main lower leg bone (tibia) by the strong tendon of the front thigh muscles (quadriceps). This occurs as the knee is straightened against resistance as in climbing and cycling, and softening occurs in the protrusion on the bone into which the tendon is inserted, causing pain, muscle spasm and disability. The condition is treated by rest or, in severe cases, by immobilizing the knee in a plaster. (Robert Bayley Osgood, 1873–1956, American surgeon; and Carl Schlatter, 1864–1934, Swiss surgeon).
