Abstract

We presented a female patient with RA complaining of progressive pain, swelling, and crepitation of the knee joints that was diagnosed with bilateral synovial chondromatosis (SC) of both knees. Radiographies revealed characteristic findings of SC including multiple calcified multifaceted loose bodies within both knees. Removal of cartilaginous segments as well as total synovectomy was performed arthroscopically on the left side and via open surgery on the right side. Short-term postoperative follow-up of our patient revealed improved knee function and resolution of all symptoms.
