Gout is a rare cause of patellar fracture, with few documented cases. We report a case of gout tophi in the patella, the severe transverse fracture resulting from minor trauma. The patient was managed by the same treatment principles used for patients with non-pathologic patella fractures. We preformed excising the mass, fixing the bone fragment and filling in bone defect with allograft bone. Union of the fracture was seen at three months follow-up. The patient has recovered completely and returned to his former work after 3 months postoperatively.
