Superior dislocation of the patella is a rare diagnosis, which usually occurs after a trivial trauma. It usually requires manipulation with analgesics or may even need anaesthesia. We report a case of spontaneous reduction of the dislocation, which lead us to believe that this may be more common in the community than has been reported.
