Synovial chondromatosis (also called synovial
osteochondromatosis) is a type of non-cancerous tumor that arises
in the lining of a joint. It has been divided into primary and secondary
forms. Primary synovial chondromatosis was originally considered
to represent chondroid metaplasia in the synovium of a joint with
resultant formation of multiple intraarticular chondral bodies.
Secondary synovial chondromatosis is associated with joint
abnormalities, such as mechanical or arthritic conditions, that cause
intraarticular chondral bodies. Primary synovial chondromatosis
typically affects adults, predominantly men, in the third to fifth
decades of life. Synovial osteochondromatosis manifests clinically
with joint pain, swelling, and limitation of motion. Although the
condition is not cancerous, it can severely damage the affected joint
and, eventually, lead to osteoarthritis. As conclusion, this case is
typical of secondary synovial chondromatosis that is the result of a
degenerative change in the joint.
