The fabella syndrome is a set of symptoms relating to the fabella, with pain on the outer back part of the knee where the fabella can rub on the femoral condyle (knuckle of the thighbone).


Treatment of fabella syndrome

Treatment of the fabella syndrome is usually conservative and includes anti inflammatories, rest and orthotics. In difficult cases the fabella may be surgically excised.
