This case report describes a 20-year-old elite-level Australian Rules football player who suffered three unilateral hamstring injuries within a 2 month period.

Magnetic resonance imaging following the third episode revealed full thickness disruption of the proximal musculotendinous junction of the biceps femoris long head and semitendinosus muscles and the common proximal (conjoint) tendon. The injury was subsequently surgically repaired. At… Expand
