Bucket-handle meniscal tears used to be rare in children younger than 10 years of age. However, nowadays, we encounter more cases because of increased sport and recreational activities. In this paper, we report on a 9-year-old girl who presented with an isolated medial meniscal bucket-handle tear of the right knee and review the literature for similar cases. Bucket-handle meniscal tears are rare in young children. However, it should be ruled out in patients with knee pain and mechanical symptoms following knee injury.
