We present a case of a 14-year-old girl who suffered a sports accident during a jump from a bench while practicing parkour, which caused a rotational movement in the right knee. She was evaluated in the emergency department and the clinical evaluation showed difficulty in walking and mobilizing the knee, knee joint effusion. Because she was in pain it was not possible to evaluate ligament stability and meniscal tests.X-ray showed avulsion fracture of the external tibial plateau and fracture avulsion of the proximal end of the fibula, above the physis. CT was performed to evaluate possible intra-articular lesions and better study of the lesion. Surgical treatment was decided. Arthroscopy was performed to assess ligament and meniscal integrity. Partial ACL rupture and LLE avulsion were observed on the lateral face of the external tibial plateau, without associated meniscal lesions.
