Approximately 1% of the total population referred for magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the knee at our facility have cystic changes at or near the attachment of the anterior or posterior cruciate ligaments (ACL, PCL). Cases were collected prospectively from a group of 1710 consecutive knee MR examinations, and a retrospective study analyzed the typical appearance of these cysts and any associated findings. Although most of the cysts were an incidental finding, two were associated with significant adjacent marrow edema.
