A 63-year-old male had right anterior knee pain and swelling after a contusion 1 week ago. The range of motion of his right knee was normal. He did not receive any surgery on the affected knee. During the physical examination, we found redness and swelling over the skin of his right infrapatellar region [Figure 1]a. He later underwent an ultrasound examination. [Figure 1]b was obtained by placing the transducer over the tibial plateau in the horizontal plane. [Figure 1]c was a panoramic image obtained by moving the transducer from the inferior patellar pole to the tibial plateau in the sagittal plane. The structure indicated by white arrows appeared to be the lesion. What is your impression?
