Abstract

A discoid meniscus is a thick, disk-shaped meniscus which is prone to tearing, degeneration, and loss of stability in the knee. A discoid meniscus most commonly affects the lateral meniscus, rarely the medial meniscus. Here, we present a case of an extremely rare medial and lateral discoid meniscus in the ipsilateral knee of a 10-year-old male. Ipsilateral medial and discoid menisci are incredibly rare and one must keep this entity in mind to avoid confusion while interpreting knee magnetic resonance imaging.
