Synovial chondromatosis is a rare variety of arthropathy which is characterized by formation of cartilaginous bodies within the synovial membrane. The infrequency of this lesion and also the need for differentiating this condition from other conditions which are also characterized by loose body formation within the joint cavity such as osteochondritis dessicans and detached osteophytic spurs of osteoarthritis, prompted the reporting of 3 cases which were recorded within a period of 5 years. The disease is usually monoarticular, the knee joint is most frequently involved, but involvement of other joints as hip, shoulder, ankle and some of the smaller joints is seen occasionally.
