We report a case of spontaneous healing of bucket-handle tear of the medial meniscus in a 32-year-old man. The patient twisted his left knee during a soccer game. At clinical examination, there was pain at mobilization and lock of extension at 45°. Magnetic resonance imaging showed a bucket-handle tear of medial meniscus and a detached fragment in the intercondylar notch. After conservative treatment there was spontaneous healing of the injury, seen on magnetic resonance imaging.
