    We described the case of a 12-year-old patient who presented isolated contracture of the left rectus femoris muscle with subsequent traumatic rupture of the distal myotendinous junction; for this reason she did not present contracture in extension of the knee but she presented dynamic contracture in flexion of the hip (Ely positive test), which generated great impact on walking. Surgical management with tenotomy of the anterior rectum was performed, obtaining good results. This pathology has low incidence and it has been reported little in the literature, so it is important to suspect it. We provide an updated diagnostic and therapeutic approach.
