Abstract provided by Publisher
 
Synovial chondromatosis has an unknown aetiology and is a benign lesion especially seen in joints like the knee and hip. However, it is extremely rare in the ankle joint. A review of the literature shows that ankle joint chondromatosis is usually treated by arthrotomy. However, excision of loose bodies by arthroscopy in the ankle joint is not common. Arthroscopic surgery provides a wide visualisation area for excision of loose bodies, allowing for synovectomy and microfracture. Our patient was a 60-year-old female who presented to our clinic with primary osteochondromatosis and osteochondral defect. Our patient underwent arthroscopic excision of loose bodies, microfracture and synovectomy. Arthroscopic management can be successful in selected patients with synovial osteochondromatosis localized to the ankle joint.
