Lateral luxation of the patella has been described in horses and ponies. Medial luxation has been reported only twice. Upward fixation of the patella is not true luxation. This report concerns two cases of lateral luxation of the patella related to hypoplasia of the lateral ridge of the trochlea of the femur.
