Ring meniscus is a known but rare abnormal variant of a meniscus. An incomplete discoid meniscus or an old bucket handle tear of a meniscus can be easily mistaken for a ring meniscus. In this case; during the first arthroscopy, the ring lateral meniscus was mistaken for an incomplete discoid lateral meniscus. On repeat arthroscopy, it was confirmed as ring lateral meniscus.
