Bilateral painful knees with loss of extension in a patient with chronic kidney disease (CKD) may be due to spontaneous quadriceps tendon rupture. This rare complication is usually seen in patients on long term dialysis. We present a case of bilateral spontaneous quadriceps tendon rupture demonstrated by magnetic resonance imaging in a 20-year-old woman who on evaluation was found to have CKD.
