Celery Stalk: The 'celery stalk' finding on knee MRI is a sign of mucoid degeneration of the ACL. Typically patients present with knee pain or restricted movement, although often other potential causes for the patient's symptoms are found.The pathogenesis remains controversial. Possible etiologies include age related degeneration, or congenital or acquired synovial tissue entrapment between ACL fibers.
