Synovial chondromatosis is a rare intraarticular benign condition arising from the synovial membrane of the joints, synovial sheaths or bursae around the joints. Primary synovial chondromatosis typically affects the large joints in the third to fifth decade of life, although involvement of smaller joints and presentation in the younger age group is also documented. The purpose of this case report is to document this rare extra-articular synovial pathology present inside the baker’s cyst which required open synovectomy and debridement to eradicate it. A 43-year-old male presented with a two-year history of pain, swelling and restriction of the right knee joint. After the clinical and radiological assessment, open synovectomy, removal of the cyst and thorough joint debridement procedure was performed. The histopathological study confirmed the findings of synovial chondromatosis.
