Tears of the menisci in the knee are common after trauma, especially following sports injuries. A 21-year-old Chinese man with a flipped bucket-handle tear of the posterior horn of the lateral meniscus is reported. The MR imaging findings were confirmed at surgery. The classification and different types of meniscal tears, and the role of MR imaging in the diagnosis of meniscal lesions, are discussed.
