Here, we report a case of a 25-year-old male with a 4 cm-mass located in the inferior pole
of the left kidney, treated by surgical excision.
15 cm skin incision was made on midline starting 2 cm distal to inferior pole
of patella extending proximally (Fig.

from the mediastinum.
Three drill holes were made from the inferior pole
to the superior pole of each patella with a 2.
The inferior pole

of patella, above the proximal pole of tibia, with the joint cavity behind it.
Patellar tendinopathy (PT) describes a clinical condition characterized by activity-related anterior knee pain associated with focal patellar tendon tenderness localized to the inferior pole
of the patella.
Parathyroid ultrasonography revealed 11 x 18 x 21 mm thyroid left inferior pole
