Abstract
Medial discoid meniscus is an uncommon abnormality. To date, only a few reports have described the associated anomaly with discoid meniscus. However, there are no reports on medial discoid meniscus accompanied by an anomaly of the meniscus itself. The authors found that a medial discoid meniscus completely coalesced with the anterior cruciate ligament. This anomaly strongly supports the congenital development theory of discoid meniscus. Both magnetic resonance imaging and the arthroscopic findings are presented. The patient was treated successfully by saucerization of the discoid meniscus up to the torn edge. This was accomplished by closely cutting the meniscus around the anterior cruciate ligament with an electric cutter.
