Abstract

Synovial chondromatosis (SC) is a rare condition with a very variable clinical presentation, thus making the diagnosis not immediate. We report a case of massive primary SC of the knee, properly evaluated with X-rays, ultrasonography and magnetic resonance imaging and successfully treated with an arthroscopic approach.
