Diagnosis and treatment of PVS KJ in children presents a number of difficulties. This is evidenced by the fact that 13 patients with PVS KJ before entering the clinic for a long time (from 2 to 5 years) were repeatedly treated in various medical institutions for various diseases. MRI was the most effective diagnostic method for PVS KJ. The intraoperative data
of arthroscopy and morphological examination of the biopsy material verified PVS in all patients.
