Synovial Chondromatosis, Extraskeletal Chondroma, Synovial Chondrosarcoma

  • Mario Campanacci


Synovial chondromatosis is a cartilaginous proliferative disorder originating in the synovial membrane of the joints, tendon sheaths, or bursae. The lesion is believed to represent a cartilaginous metaplasia of the synovial cells.
