Pellegrini-Stieda lesion: ossification in or near the tibial collateral ligament (medial femoral collateral ligament) adjacent to the margin of the medial femoral condyle. Ossified post-traumatic lesion (presumed secondary to Stieda fracture)
Stieda fracture: bony avulsion injury of the medial collateral ligament at the medial femoral condyle. Calcification may form a few weeks following the initial injury (Pellegrini-Stieda lesion).
Pellegrini-Stieda syndrome: medial knee pain following previous medial collateral ligament injury and Pellegrini-Stieda lesion (which are most commonly asymptomatic).
1903 – Alban Köhler reported a case of a 56-year-old male who injured his knee during piling of wood [Plate VII, figure 12 p140 – published 1905]
On the inner condyle proximal a small flat dark shadow, just visible on the radiograph, which can only correspond with a connective tissue ossification.
1905 – Augusto Pellegrini called attention to a traumatic ossification of the collateral tibial ligament of the knee. Pellegrini thought that the disease was traumatic. This received minimal international attention as the journal (Clinica moderna (Firenze)) was taken out of production shortly after his publication
1907 – Alfred Stieda, unaware of the previous work, again called attention to a semilunar-shaped calcification seen about the superior border of the internal epicondyle of the femur. Stieda believed it was due to a fracture with a detachment of a small particle of bone at the moment of injury
