Answer

Medial tibial condyle bone marrow edema associated with soft tissue edema surrounding the MCL on MRI has been reported to result in a painful syndrome of medial tibial crest friction, possibly related to the angle of the crest. [21] This is not to be confused with medial tibial stress syndrome, "shin splints," which is pain in the mid-to-distal tibia.
