Diagnosis: Radial tear of the anterior horn of the lateral meniscus

History: 20 year old male, varsity basketball player, with 1 day history of left knee pain after sustaining varus stress to his left knee.

Findings: Axial T2 weighted fat saturated cut through the knee joint: •Cleft sign of free edge of lateral meniscus. Sagittal oblique T1 cut of lateral knee: •Ghosting of anterior horn of lateral meniscus. Also with noted loss of bow tie appearance of the menisci. Sagittal PD cut of lateral knee: •Ghosting of free edge of lateral meniscus with increased signal. Sagittal PD cut through lateral knee: •Ghosting of free edge of lateral meniscus with increased signal.

Ddx: • Radial meniscal tear • Longitudinal/circumferential/bucket handle meniscal tear

Dxhow: Arthroscopic findings. The video of the arthroscopy is available on the following link: http://rad.usuhs.mil/medpix/multimedia_files/arthroscopy.mpg

Exam: Positive lateral joint line tenderness. Positive swelling of left knee.
