    Introduction: As very few African publications are found in the literature concerning Brodie’s abscesses, we report a rare case of the association of a Brodie’s abscess with soft tissue swelling in a sportsman in Abidjan (Ivory Coast).

    Report case: A 30-year-old patient presented knee pain associated with swelling of the distal third of the thigh as a result of a sports trauma. The diagnosis of a Brodie’s abscess was made. Surgical treatment combined with antibiotic therapy was performed. The evolution was favourable.

    Conclusion: Brodie’s abscess is a subacute osteomyelitis that can pose a diagnostic problem with bone tumors. Magnetic Resonance Imaging has a place in the diagnosis. Patient management must be multidisciplinary.
