In brief: Inflammed tissue.

The plica is a band of tissue that runs along the front/inner side of your knee.
It can become inflammed and mimic meniscal tear symptoms.

In brief: A fold of tissue

Knee medial patellar plica is part of the lining of the knee joint.
Normal plica are small. It can be injured and become scarred and large. Large plica can be pinched by your kneecap. This is painful and is located on the inner side of your kneecap. Sports can aggravate it. An orthopedic surgeon can evaluate this and treat it with exercise, a sleeve, nsaids, and occasionally, arthroscopy.
