Douleurs latérales mécaniques du genou

Abstract : Lateral knee pain is a common presenting complaint with many possible causes. History and physical examination can decrease imaging indication and narrow the possible causes explained by an articular (lateral knee osteoarthritis, patellofemoral syndrome, proximal tibiofibular joint, lateral meniscus tear, discoid lateral meniscus), a musculotendinous (iliotibial band syndrome, biceps femoris, popliteus syndrome) or an osseous origin (osteonecrosis, complex regional pain syndrome, stress fracture…). Referred pain resulting from hip joint pathology, L4 or L5 radiculopathy also may cause lateral knee pain.
