Increased athletic participation by the skeletally immature athlete and a heightened suspicion by physicians have contributed to an increase in the incidence of meniscal injuries in children and adolescents. In young patient, meniscal injury could have long-term consequences, so an understanding of recognition and treatment is essential. We review the anatomy and development of the menisci, review classification and diagnosis of meniscal tears, discuss management options and outcomes of treatment, and focus on discoid lateral meniscus and meniscal cysts.
