Arthroscopic partial resection is indicated for patients who have symptomatic discoid meniscus with overall satisfactory clinical outcomes. Reports regarding regeneration of discoid meniscus after arthroscopic surgery are limited. There are only two reports for children in the literature. To the authors’ knowledge, the present study is the first report in the literature to report regeneration of discoid lateral meniscus after arthroscopic partial meniscectomy in an adult patient. The diagnosis was confirmed by both magnetic resonance imaging and arthroscopy. Surgeons should be aware that regeneration of discoid meniscus can occur in adult as well as pediatric patients.
