The cyst of anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) is a known clinical entity, but its association with knee synovitis and melon or rice bodies is not documented. We report a rare case of ganglionic cyst of the knee in association with diffuse synovitis and multiple melon or rice bodies in a 36-year-old male. The case was treated arthroscopically with the removal of the cyst of ACL and multiple melon seed bodies. Information regarding incidence, treatment, and outcomes for patients with synovial cysts and melon seed bodies is lacking. Arthroscopic examination of joint gives the opportunity to diagnose such rare entity of the joint and also provide minimally invasive effective treatment of such pathology.
