Discoid Meniscus: What Is It?

Description of the Condition

A discoid meniscus is a condition where the meniscus in the knee joint becomes flat instead of its usual crescent shape. This can lead to pain and discomfort in the joint.


  • A discoid meniscus can be classified as congenital or acquired.


  • Pain in the knee during movement
  • Stiffness or locking of the knee
  • Swelling and inflammation around the knee joint


The causes of a discoid meniscus may be related to genetics, injuries, or joint wear and tear.


Methods such as MRI or arthroscopy are used to diagnose a discoid meniscus.


Treatment may involve conservative methods such as physiotherapy, or surgical intervention to remove or repair the meniscus.


Preventive measures may include strengthening the muscles, avoiding injuries, and proper joint care.


For the diagnosis and treatment of a discoid meniscus, it is advisable to consult an orthopedic surgeon.
