Synovial chondromatosis, a disorder that most commonly affects large joints, has recently been reported in joints such as the subtalar joint and other joints of the foot. The disease most commonly presents in a monoarticular pattern and is characterized by metaplastic cartilage development within the synovium. Definitive diagnosis must be made with histology and should be supported with radiographic examinations which should always include MRI. The lesions are usually associated with pain, swelling, crepitation and decreased range of motion at the affected joint. They may also cause erosive changes to the surrounding bone. The current treatment of synovial chondromatosis is surgical excision of the lesion or lesions. We describe a rare case of synovial chondromatosis in which the patient presented with a non-painful soft tissue lesion on the plantar aspect of her right foot.
