Özet

Popliteus muscle sesamoid bone, also known as cyamella, is an accessory ossicle that is located in the vicinity of the proximal musculo tendinous junction. While commonly seen in small mammals such as cats and dogs, its presence in humans is very rare. In this report, we present the radiological findings of the popliteus muscle sesamoid bone, incidentally detected in a 47-year-old male. CT and MRI features of this ossicle are described.
