Clinical presentation of meniscal injury

Describe the clinical presentation of meniscal injury. What part of the meniscus is most commonly torn?

The clinical presentation of a meniscal tear is typically pain and locking of the knee. The posterior horn of the medial meniscus is the primary weight-bearing surface and is most commonly torn. The anterior horn of the lateral meniscus is the most common site for a false-positive diagnosis, where the normal anterior transverse meniscal ligament may mimic a tear.
