Superior dislocation of patella is a rare injury. Patient usually presents with painful locking of the knee. The authors describe here a case of 54-year-male, who bumped his right knee on the edge of the bed. The patient was unable to extend his right knee. This was diagnosed as superior dislocation of patella and then managed with closed reduction with intramuscular analgesia.
