Bilateral quadriceps tendon rupture in a seasoned marathon runner with patellar spurs

We present the case of a healthy seasoned marathon runner who sustained bilateral quadriceps tendon rupture following a low-energy fall. Radiographs demonstrated bilateral patellar spurs. Our case report serves to highlight the importance of maintaining a high index of clinical suspicion in patients of all ages. This is the first report of bilateral quadriceps rupture in the presence of bilateral patellar spurs.
