Patella dislocation is a classical injury affecting teenagers. In 2/3 of cases, it occurs in sports activities. It is often a benign trauma which happens in a patello-femoral dysplasia context, leading to dislocation and reccurence if nothing is done to correct the defaults. Radiographic and scanner examinations allow to measure the dysplasia parameters and think about its correction. With MRI documentation, capsulo-ligamentous and cartilaginous lesions can be identified and their surgical repair can be discussed. When the dislocation occurs in a normal anatomical context, conservative therapy is still indicated.
