Abstract: 

Patellar fracture is a relatively uncommon fracture especially the vertical sagittal type. In cases of high energy trauma injury, it is usually associated with fracture of ipsilateral distal femur or proximal tibia. However, the combination of vertical sagittal fracture patella and ipsilateral fracture lateral condyle is very rare. This necessitates judicious diagnosis and appropriate management to ensure optimal functional outcome. Open reduction and internal fixation is the treatment of choice in managing these types of injuries. This should be followed by gradual mobilization of the affected knee joint. Weight bearing can be started once the fracture starts showing signs of union on X-rays. Literature search shows only one case report describing this pattern. The aim of this case report is to highlight the rarity of this injury, to understand the injury mechanism and surgical approach used for these injuries. The knowledge of this combination will help us manage these injuries so that good functional outcome is achieved.
