Synovial osteochondromatosis is a rare, benign condition of unknown etiology in which the synovium undergoes metaplasia, leading to cartilaginous nodules that ultimately break free, mineralize, and even ossify. The most commonly involved joint is the knee. Patients may be asymptomatic or may present with pain, swelling, and limited range of motion. Recommended treatment involves arthroscopic or open removal of loose bodies with or without a synovectomy to prevent further articular and periarticular destruction and to remove symptoms. Synovial osteochondromatosis is usually diagnosed based on imaging findings because each stage of the disease has a characteristic appearance on X-ray, CT, and MRI. Generally, a plain radiograph can be diagnostic and mineralized nodules are pathognomonic. Here, we report a case of synovial in which we had difficulty making a diagnosis due to an atypical imaging appearance.
