Abstract

The plica is remaining synovial septa in adult life which developed in early fetal life. The suprapatellar plica separates the suprapatellar pouch from the knee joint which sometimes has chnical significance according to its shape, but it has been occasionally overlooked and also pathophysiology of symptomatic plicae may be hard to explain. The authors experienced 7 cases of suprapatellar plica syndrome which mimic soft tissue tumor in 7 patients who had complained of vague pain and ill defined mass around the knee and by arthroscopy found the imperforated suprapatellar plica in which increased hydraulic pressure cavity evokes the clinical symptoms and signs exarnination from 1992 to 1997. We suggest that the suprapatellar plica with complete septum might be clinically significant in patients who are in active life.
