      Introduction: To determine the association between patellar tendon angle (AITP) and the presence of anterior knee pain (DAR) and the prevalence of DAR in college athletes. Materials and methods: Cross-sectional study of college athletes. The presence of DAR was detected using the Anterior Knee Pain Scale by Kujala and AITP was calculated by analyzing a photograph of both legs with Kinovea program ®. Each knee was considered as a sample. The prevalence ratio between the DAR and the AITP was calculated using Poisson regression robust Results: 143 subjects were evaluated, therefore, 286 knees, where 176 (61.5%) had anterior knee pain (DAR). The AITP was ranked in quartiles. To analyze was joined second and third quartile so was obtained a midquartile (9° and 14°). It was found that AITP fewer than 9° is 1.34 (95% CI, 1.09 - 1.65) more likely to have DAR, and AITP greater than 14° is 1.35 (95% CI; 1,09- 1.69) more likely. Conclusions: Athletes with AITP fewer than 9 ° or greater than 14 ° are more likely to have DAR. It is recommended that the professional considers the inclination patellar tendon angle in the evaluation
