Affiliation: Uniformed Services University

ABSTRACT

Diagnosis: Meniscal Tear (radiologic and athroscopic confirmation)

History: 30 y.o. man with chronic left knee pain after an injury

Findings: 1) This is a T2 weighted coronal image of the Left knee with fat saturation showing abnormal signal in the medial meniscus which clearly contacts the articular surface. This is consistent with a meniscal tear. Also note edema surrounding the lateral collateral ligament (sprain). 2) This Sagittal proton density image of the left knee reveals linear abnormal signal in the posterior horn of the medial meniscus

Ddx: Knee, medial meniscus tear

Dxhow: Imaging and arthroscopic surgery

Exam: No exam or lab findings available

No MeSH data available.
