Meniscal and parameniscal pathology is usually diagnosed through magnetic resonance imaging. The availability of high-frequency high-resolution linear transducers for sonographic detection of peripheral meniscal and parameniscal pathology has made not only the diagnosis but also the treatment of symptomatic parameniscal cysts a more accessible option. This case report illustrates the use of sonographically guided meniscal cyst aspiration and injection as an alternative to surgical treatment in the proper clinical scenario.
