Ossicles anterior to the anterior tibia are most usually seen in relation to the tibial tuberosity. While these are usually taken to represent sequelae of previous Osgood-Schlatter disease, they may, on occasion, represent normal variants in ossification of the tuberosity. Ossicles superior to the tuberosity may have similar origins. Representative examples are presented, as is a very large ossicle separated from the anterior tibia by a prolongation of the knee joint space. Theories of causation of such ossicles are discussed.
