We ­report two cas­es of loc­al­ised hyper­tro­phy of sem­i­mem­bra­no­us mus­cle in ­young ath­letes diag­nosed ­with ultra­so­nog­ra­phy, ­flow col­or-Doppler and MRI. The symp­to­mat­ic ­case had the res­o­lu­tion of the ­pain ­after one ­month ­rest. At one ­year fol­low-up ­both cas­es are ­still asymp­to­mat­ic, with­out any fur­ther ­increase of the hyper­troph­yc mass­es.
