Lateral condyle

The lateral condyle is a feature of the tibia, which is the main bone of the lower-leg. The lateral condyle is located on the lateral side of the tibia (i.e. the furthest part of the tibia from the mid-line of the body), at the top of the tibia where it forms the knee-joint with the femur.

For diagram showing the location of the lateral condyle relative to the fibula, tibia, patella and femur, see the simple sketch below.

See the page about features on bones for more about structures such as a condyle on a bone. It describes a condyle as a:

"Rounded bump or large rounded prominence. Such rounded surfaces usually fit into a fossa on another bone to form a joint."
