Until recently several categories of rare meniscus lesions in children received little attention in the orthopedic literature although several had been described many years previously. Instabilities of the posterior horn of the lateral meniscus, very often without concomitant structural lesions, isolated radial tears of the lateral meniscus, meniscal root tears as well as meniscocapsular or meniscosynovial lesions have very often neither been recognized nor been treated, sometimes because of technical limitations of the currently available techniques. The present report describes these lesions in children as well as classical and innovative repair techniques.
