ALEXANDRA J. STRONG, M.D., AND RAYMOND LOVETT, M.D.


Anterior cruciate ligament deficiency has been noted as an associated finding with fibular hemimelia. The incidence of this association has not been cited in the literature. In this study, the charts and X-rays of over one hundred patients were evaluated. The radiographic diagnosis of anterior cruciate ligament deficiency is based on tibial eminence hypoplasia.
