Coronal fractures of distal femur are complex intra articular fractures. Various cases of unicondylar and bicondylar Hoffa fractures have been reported in literature. Bilateral unicondylar Hoffa fracture is a very rare injury and it is not reported in literature to best of our knowledge. We report a case of bilateral unicondylar Hoffa fracture associated with tibial spine avulsion in right knee and possible mechanism of injury in same patient.
