As arthroscopy advances and more children are involved in sporting activities, a new field of pediatric sports medicine is emerging. This paper reviews the diagnosis and treatment aspects of three pediatric knee conditions often encountered in the care of skeletally immature patients. We specifically address anterior cruciate ligament injuries, osteochondritis dessicans and discoid meniscus. Representative cases with images and arthroscopic correlation are included.
