Quadriceps tendon rupture is an unusual injury, mostly occurring in the middle-aged population involved in athletic activities. Patients with such injuries present with a history of trauma, which may be direct or indirect, associated with swelling and inability to actively extend the knee. When associated with minor trauma, the concurrent presence of chronic diseases and the long-term use of certain medications should be looked for. Neglected traumatic quadriceps tendon rupture is very rare. Our patient presented with a neglected quadriceps tendon rupture of the left knee due to injury sustained 6 months. Consent was taken from him to be used as a case report. The patient had full recovery after surgery and physiotherapy. The index case report is important as the patient had delayed presentation in such a rare injury.
