This is the first report of a ganglion cyst arising from the short head of the biceps femoris tendon. Intratendinous ganglion cyst is a very rare lesion with an unknown etiology that originates within the tendon. We encountered a case of a 30-year-old female who complained of persistent pain for 2 months in the proximal anterolateral part of the leg. An intratendinous ganglion cyst in the semimembranosus tendon of the short head of the biceps femoris was diagnosed and located by ultrasound. Three months after surgical excision, there we encountered no recurrence. We describe this case with a review of the relevant literature.
