Synovial fluid has been described as a protein containing dialysate of blood plasma to which mucin is added by the synovial cells (Ropes and Bauer 1953). It reflects the pathology of a joint in the same manner as urine reflects the process taking place in the kidney (Schmid and Ogata 1965). Singh and Lal (1978) recently reviewed the usefulness of synovial analysis in diseases of the joints. The present study was undertaken to correlate the clinical presentation and results of synovial fluid analysis, serum biochemistry and histological examination of synovial membrane in arthritic conditions commonly encountered in this part of the country.
