There are many normal anatomical variants of the knee joint. Some are common and others are rare. With continuing improvements in the spatial resolution of MRI, smaller variants are more clearly demonstrated and can be mistaken for disease. They can all be differentiated from pathological conditions by understanding their anatomy and key differentiating features. This review compares normal variants of the menisci and cruciate ligaments with the pathological disorders that can mimic them.
