Osteochondritis Dissecans of the Knee

This condition is characterized by the death of an area of cartilage and bone in the knee joint. The dead section may remain in place, forming a lesion, or it may loosen and partially detach from the surrounding bone. It may break away completely and float around inside the joint. This is one of the main causes of loose bodies in the knee joint.
