Abstract: Five patients with isolated rupture of the posterior cruciate injury following road traffic accidents were noted to demonstrate a "positive Lachman test". Stress radiographs while performing the Lachman manoeuvre confirmed that all 5 patients had only a posterior cruciate injury. Attention is drawn to the "false positive Lachman test" that indicates a posterior cruciate injury. The presence of a sag sign also establishes a diagnosis of posterior cruciate rupture and a positive Lachman test in this situation must be interpreted with caution.
