Introduction: The objective of the study was to observe the morphometric variations in the anatomy of human left and right medial menisci. The relevant data for medial meniscus anatomical variation is rather unexplored thus emphasizing the importance of the study.
Materials and Methods: Dissection of 30 adult knees was performed. The menisci were compared for weight, inner and outer circumference along with width of the menisci.
Conclusion: Although the menisci may show subtle anatomic variations in their morphology within the same species, the left and right side medial meniscus in the same individual are morphologically equivalent.

Keywords: Morphology, Medial meniscus, Knee anatomy, Cadaveric study.
