This is an MRI report.

I am having trouble figuring out whether or not I should translate "corno anterior" as "anterior cornus" or not.

Anterior or Posterior Horn
The anterior and posterior horns of the meniscus help the radiologist communicate where in the meniscus he or she sees an abnormality. The anterior horn of the meniscus is in the front of the knee, and the posterior horn is in back. The posterior horn of the meniscus is more commonly injured.

By the way, I'd translate "degeneração mucinóide" as "mucoid degeneration" (you didn't ask, but it would be more appropriate in the glossary entry).
