A case of a 20-year-old distance runner who had iliotibial band friction syndrome is reported. The patient was treated conservatively for six months, but his symptom continued. Therefore, we performed operative treatment, which is the open-window method of iliotibial band at the site of lateral femoral epicondyl. He has returned to full sports activity as a distance runner.
