The optimal operative management of anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury continues to be debated. Many complications can occur, but fracture is often not routinely discussed. We present a complex intra-articular tibia fracture in a patient who had an autologous, ipsilateral bone-patellar-bone ACL reconstruction. While still advocating early, aggressive physical therapy, this case reminds us of the inherent susceptibility to injury in the immediate post-operative period.
