A Shear fracture of posterior aspect of femoral condyles in coronal plane is known as Hoffa fracture. This fracture pattern, originally described by Hoffa, is an intra-articular fracture and radiologically and clinically silent most of the times and thus commonly missed. The bicondylar variant of this fracture is a rare injury. We report a case of 38-year old male patient presenting with one day old bicondylar Hoffa fracture managed with headless compression screw and cannulated cancellous screws.
