Anterior cruciate ligament injuries occur at a rate of about 8.1/100,000 per year.1 They are known to be more common in females with 4-5 times increased risk of rupture in female athletes. There have been limited studies that have looked at risk factors for increased occurrence of ACL rupture in twins. We present a literature review and a case presentation of two identical twins that had bilateral ACL tears within a span of two years.
