Arthroscopy with debridement and/or repair is commonly performed for meniscal tears; the understanding of meniscal anatomy is important for successful treatment of meniscal injuries. This case report focuses on an aberrant insertion site of the medial meniscus (MM) anterior horn, visualized during an arthroscopic procedure to debride an MM tear.
