Meloheostosis is rare sclerosing bone disease of unknown aetiology. It was first identified as a distinct clinical entiry by Leri and Joanny in 1922. A survey of the World literature reveals that in the last 52 years 169 cases of melorcheostosis are on record (Abrahmson 1968, Campbell et al. 1969 Gupta et al. 1969, Ewald 1972, and Udawat et al. 1974) and of these only 4 case have been reported from India (Wahi et al. 1963, Sen et al. 1966, Gupta et al. 1969 and Udawat et al. 1974). This interesting case of melorhzostosis with habitual dislocation of the patella is being reported here for its rarity.
