Patellar tendon ruptures are uncommon.The rupture site is usually proximal or mid-tendon. Surgical repair to restore the extensor mechanism is the treatment of choice for complete ruptures. Patellar tendon re-rupture are even rarer. If it occurs, the re-rupture usually occurs at the site of surgical repair. We describe a case of patellar tendon re-rupture at the opposite end of a previous proximal tendon repair, which is at the tibial tuberosity insertion. This appears to be the first of such a case reported to the best of our knowledge.
