Woman Injures Knee During Soccer Game – Let’s Diagnose

An athletic 21-year-old woman presents to the doctor with lateral knee pain (localized to anterior section), joint effusion, and edema that developed rapidly after injuring her right knee during a college soccer game. The patient recalls feeling a “pop” sensation in her knee at the time of injury. She is also having trouble with ambulation due to severe knee pain and is having trouble bearing weight on her right leg. Radiological exam / radiograph revealed an avulsion fracture and underlying ACL injury.

Is it a tibial plateau fracture, segond fracture, tibial tubercle fracture, or lateral patellar compression syndrome?
