Total joint arthroplasty is commonly recommended as a definitive treatment for synovial chondromatosis refractory to other treatment. We describe a unique case of synovial chondromatosis developing after total joint arthroplasty in a patient presenting 5 years after total knee arthroplasty for osteoarthritis. This case illustrates that the diagnosis of synovial chondromatosis cannot be excluded in a patient with chronic, painful swelling of a joint, even after total joint arthroplasty.

This retrospective analysis examines the outcome of total joint arthroplasty for severe arthritis in patients with synovial chondromatosis. All 11 patients treated with total hip arthroplasty (n = 7) or total knee arthroplasty (n = 4) returned for follow-up at a mean of 10.8 years after surgery. Pain and functional scores improved significantly in all patients. Knee range of motion improved in all patients. Synovial chondromatosis recurred in 1 knee (25%) and 1 hip (14%). Total joint arthroplasty is a valuable treatment option for these patients with predictable improvement in pain and function...

Primary synovial chondromatosis represents an uncommon benign neoplastic process with hyaline cartilage nodules in the subsynovial tissue of a joint, tendon sheath, or bursa. The nodules may enlarge and detach from the synovium. The knee, followed by the hip, in male adults are the most commonly involved sites and patient population. The pathologic appearance may simulate chondrosarcoma because of significant histologic atypia, and radiologic correlation to localize the process as synovially based is vital for correct diagnosis...

We describe a case of highly refractory synovial chondromatosis, which recurred despite four arthroscopic synovectomies, a chemical synovectomy, two open synovectomies and an arthrodesis. A review of the literature revealed one similar case. Both presented with marked joint stiffness suggesting a poor prognosis. Although arthrodesis may relieve short-term symptoms it does not prevent further recurrence of disease.

This article illustrates the imaging characteristics of primary synovial chondromatosis (PSC) using 20 cases referred to a tertiary orthopaedic oncology centre. Three quarters of patients presented with a large intra-articular soft tissue mass and a suspected clinical and radiological diagnosis of malignancy made in the referring centres. Radiographs demonstrated fine cartilaginous mineralisation in the soft tissue masses in 85% cases and bone erosions were shown on MR imaging in 80%. Malignant transformation to chondrosarcoma was proven in 2 cases with longstanding disease...
