  Patellar tendon rupture is common cause of extensor mechanism disruption in young patients. It is usually occurs in partially flexed knee with foot planted. Patellar tendon rupture occurs most commonly at inferior pole of patella or avulsion from tibial tuberosity. Patellar tendon mid substance rupture is a very rare injury. We found only two case reports of mid substance rupture in literature. We reported a case of mid substance patellar tendon rupture in a 48 year old male.
