Brief overview of the episode:

            Osgood-Schlatter disease (OSD) and Sinding-Larsen-Johannson disease (SLJD) both present as pain in the front of the knee, they are both most common in athletic children. This is the case because both are apophysitis. That is a pulling on the bone from a tendon due to traumatic or more commonly repetitive use.

            With Osgood-Schlatter it is far more common to see a physical bony change where the patella tendon attaches to the tibial. This site is called the tibial tubercle and it will become much more prominent in individuals who are experiencing pain associated with OSD of who have previously dealt with it.

            In cases of Sinding-Larsen-Johannson disease there is often no visible perceived bony change. It is however, apparent with an x-ray. SLJD is far less common than OSD and is therefore not as commonly discussed.

            One of the defining characteristics of individuals with either Osgood-Schlatter disease and Sinding-Larsen-Johannson disease is something called quad dominance.

Boys and girls are affected about the same.
