Abstract

An 11-month-old neutered female crossbreed dog was admitted with left pelvic limb lameness. Radiographs and computed tomography identified an osteochondritis dissecans-(OCD) like lesion in the intercondylar fossa of the femur originating from the axial aspect of the medial femoral condyle. Stifle arthrotomy was performed in order to remove the bony fragment. It was concluded that the clinical features and location of this lesion indicate an osteochondritis dessicans-like lesion. Fragment removal was associated with an excellent outcome.
