The fat pad is a normal structure in the knee. It is literally composed of fat and is bright yellow in colour and exists below the patella (kneecap) just behind the patellar tendon. In this position it buffers any shocks to the front of the knee, but itself commonly suffers injury and problems related to the fat pad are not uncommon.
