Sažetak

Objective: To present a case of knee joint ankylosis in human skeletal remains found in Istria, Croatia.
Materials and methods: A fused knee joint was found at archeological site St Teodor. We analyzed the knee changes using macroscopic observation, using digital radiography and computed tomography.
Results: Macroscopic analysis and both digital radiography and computed tomography imaging show knee ankylosis with cortical thickening.
Conclusion: Knee ankylosis with cortical thickening suggests that the person still used the leg despite the disability.
