We report a rare avulsion fracture of the tibial tuberosity with a large sagittal plane anterior tibia fracture with articular extension in an adult. Avulsion fractures of the tibial tuberosity are uncommon fractures and are seen most frequently in adolescents with the disruption of the physeal plate. We report a variant of an Ogden type 3a fracture in an adult and describe a novel method of fixation.
