摘要

We describe the case of a patient with a popliteal cyst caused by progressive dissemination of wear debris from a failed total knee prosthesis into the popliteal fossa. The cyst was surgically removed to relieve the compression symptom. Revision total knee replacement was performed one year later. Mechanism of the cyst formation and review of the literature were postulated. We also want to remind such an unusual etiology of popliteal cyst and suggest the adequate timing of revision operation.
