Rare, benign, chronic, progressive metaplasia in which cartilage is formed in the synovial membranes of joints, tendon sheaths, or bursae. Some of the metaplastic foci can become detached producing loose bodies. When the loose bodies undergo secondary calcification, the condition is called synovial osteochondromatosis.
Multiple formation of chondromas. (Dorland, 27th ed)
Fibrous, bony, cartilaginous and osteocartilaginous fragments in a synovial joint. Major causes are osteochondritis dissecans, synovial chondromatosis, osteophytes, fractured articular surfaces and damaged menisci.
A benign neoplasm derived from mesodermal cells that form cartilage. It may remain within the substance of a cartilage or bone (true chondroma or enchondroma) or may develop on the surface of a cartilage (ecchondroma or ecchondrosis). (Dorland, 27th ed; Stedman, 25th ed)
The compartment containing the anterior extremities and half the inferior surface of the temporal lobes (TEMPORAL LOBE) of the cerebral hemispheres. Lying posterior and inferior to the anterior cranial fossa (CRANIAL FOSSA, ANTERIOR), it is formed by part of the TEMPORAL BONE and SPHENOID BONE. It is separated from the posterior cranial fossa (CRANIAL FOSSA, POSTERIOR) by crests formed by the superior borders of the petrous parts of the temporal bones.
A variety of conditions affecting the anatomic and functional characteristics of the temporomandibular joint. Factors contributing to the complexity of temporomandibular diseases are its relation to dentition and mastication and the symptomatic effects in other areas which account for referred pain to the joint and the difficulties in applying traditional diagnostic procedures to temporomandibular joint pathology where tissue is rarely obtained and x-rays are often inadequate or nonspecific. Common diseases are developmental abnormalities, trauma, subluxation, luxation, arthritis, and neoplasia. (From Thoma's Oral Pathology, 6th ed, pp577-600)

Symptomatic laryngeal nodular chondrometaplasia: a clinicopathological study. (2/4)

A 41 year old man with a history of politrauma presented with a nodular mass of the left false vocal cord, associated with progressive dysphonia, dyspnoea, and dysphagia. A computed tomography scan of the neck region showed a rounded and circumscribed mass without infiltration of the surrounding tissues. Histological investigation of the nodule revealed the presence of fibroelastic cartilaginous tissue, surrounded by a thin rim of fibrous tissue, with rare hypercellular areas, occasional binucleated cells, slight hyperchromasia, and an irregular nuclear profile. Mitotic activity was absent. The patient's history of laryngeal trauma, with the subsequent progressive onset of clinical symptoms, helps to distinguish the chondrometaplastic nature of this nodule from true laryngeal cartilaginous tumours, such as chondroma and low grade chondrosarcoma.  (+info)

A case of chondromatosis indicates a synovial stem cell aetiology. (3/4)

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate cell cultures derived from intrasynovial nodules from a patient with primary synovial chondromatosis (PSC) for aberrant numbers/differentiation of osteochondroprogenitor cells. METHODS: Cell cultures were established from PSC synovial nodules, or normal bovine or human osteoarthritis (OA) synovia (for comparison). Multi-lineage potential was determined using well-characterized in vitro culture systems to assess osteogenic, chondrogenic and adipogenic capability. RESULTS: Primary PSC cell cultures were typically fibroblastic but contained islands of dense cell clusters/nodules, some of which were isolated and cultured separately [putative osteochondroprogenitris (pOCP) cultures]. OA synovial cultures had barely detectable levels of alkaline phosphatase (AP) that increased (0.006+/-0.008 to 0.141+/-0.000 nmol p-nitrophenol/min/cm(2)) with dexamethasone treatment. AP activity was higher in primary PSC cell cultures and further enhanced by dexamethasone (from 0.076+/-0.022 to 5.735+/-0.000 nmol p-nitrophenol/min/cm(2)). Histochemically, AP was localized as discreet areas within PSC cultures. No AP activity was detected histochemically in OA or normal bovine synovial cultures. The pOCP cultures had high basal AP (5.036+/-0.439 nmol p-nitrophenol/min/cm(2)) and spontaneously formed mineralized nodules, which increased in number under standard osteogenic conditions. Under chondrogenic conditions, micromass or pellet-cultured pOCP cells spontaneously synthesized a matrix containing glycosaminoglycans and collagen II. In adipogenic medium, the number of lipid-containing cells was increased. CONCLUSIONS: Compared with cultures established from OA or normal synovia, cell cultures established from PSC synovial nodules were enriched in osteochondroprogenitors, which, unlike normal mesenchymal cells, differentiated along chondrogenic and osteogenic lineages in the absence of dexamethasone.  (+info)

Chondromyxoid fibroma of the seventh cervical vertebra. (4/4)

Chondromyxoid fibroma is a rare benign bone tumor representing less than 0.5% of all bone tumors. It commonly involves the long tubular bones. Involvement of the spine is rare. A 35-year-old man presented with history of neck pain, restriction of neck movements, pain and numbness along the medial aspect of the left forearm and weakness with wasting of the left hand. A presumptive diagnosis of a bony tumor such as an aneurysmal bone cyst or a giant cell tumor involving the seventh vertebral body was made on plain X-rays, MRI and bone scan. He underwent C7 central corpectomy, incomplete intralesional curettage with iliac bone grafting and C6 to T1 interspinous wiring. The histological diagnosis was chondromyxoid fibroma. On eight years' follow-up, CT scan showed no progression of the tumor with good alignment and fusion of the graft at the site of the corpectomy. The authors conclude that corpectomy and iliac bone grafting for chondromyxoid fibroma has a good outcome on long-term follow-up.  (+info)

Synovial chondromatosis is a rare, benign (noncancerous) condition that involves the synovium -- the thin layer of tissue that lines the joints. Synovial chondromatosis can arise in any joint in the body, but most commonly occurs in the knee.

Introduction: Synovial chondromatosis is a rare, benign monoarticular condition characterized by the metaplastic formation of cartilaginous nodules from the synovium of joints (intra-articular), tendons and bursae (extra-articular). These nodules have the potential to detach and form loose bodies within the joint space. The most common locations are the large joints such as the knees, hips, elbows, and shoulders, with less common locations being the foot and ankle joints. Synovial chondromatosis primarily occurs in men between the third and fifth decades of life, and it typically presents as chronic joint pain with swelling, decreased joint range of motion, and osteoarthritis. Treatment is usually centered on excision and retrieval of nodules and loose bodies. Prognosis is usually good with a low-moderate likelihood of recurrence. Case Report: We report the very rare case of a 27-year-old male with recurrent intra- and extra-articular ankle synovial chondromatosis, who also reported symptoms consistent

Treatment commenced with a thermoplastic thumb splint (Figure 2) to immobilise the affected thumb. Once swelling and pain reduced (approximately 2 weeks later) the splint was changed to a neosleeve soft support (Figure 3), which provided knock and bump protection, as well as oedema control, but allowed normal movement of the thumb.. Three months later the patient reported that often she would take the thumb support off to wash her hands and then hours later would realise that she had forgotten to put it back on. This is always a good sign! Power and pinch grips were back to 90% of normal as was range of motion and function. ...

Synovial chondromatosis affecting the glenohumeral joint is rare. Treatment primarily consists of arthroscopic loose body removal and synovectomy. Shoulder arthroplasty has been mentioned in the literature as a treatment option for patients with coexisting arthritis, although the results have been underreported. The case of an 84-year-old man with long standing synovial chondromatosis of the shoulder resulting in severe degenerative disease is presented. The patient was treated with a reverse total shoulder arthroplasty, loose body removal, and a complete synovectomy. Three and six month follow up results have shown a decrease in the visual analogue scale for pain, improved range of motion, and no radiographic evidence of disease recurrence. Reverse total shoulder arthroplasty is a viable treatment option for synovial chondromatosis in patients with coexisting glenohumeral arthritis demonstrating good short term outcomes.

N2 - Osteomalacia has multiple aetiologies including the least common, tumour-induced osteomalacia (TIO). Recently, most cases of TIO have been confirmed to be due to phosphaturic mesenchymal tumour of mixed connective tissue type (PMTMCT). Most cases of TIO are the result of production of the fibroblast growth factor-23 (FGF-23) by the tumour. The authors recently showed reverse transcriptase PCR (RT-PCR) for FGF-23 to be valuable in the diagnosis of PMTMCT. However, the authors also noted FGF-23 expression in some cases of aneurysmal bone cyst (ABC) and chondromyxoid fibroma (CMF). For the present study, the authors studied FGF-23 expression by RT-PCR in 19 cases of ABC and eight cases of CMF, all with typical ...
Chondromyxoid fibroma is a rare benign tumor of cartilaginous origin with myxoid and fibrous components. It accounts for approximately 1% of bone tumors. Metaphysis of long bones is the most common location of this tumor. However, there a few case reports of this tumor arising from epiphysis of short tubular bones of the hand and feet. An 11-year-old girl presented to our OPD with complaints of pain and a gradually progressive swelling of the right great toe. On examination, the swelling was diffuse with no signs of inflammation. X-ray examination revealed a well-defined, longitudinally oval lytic lesion in the right distal phalanx of great toe, involving the growth plate and, eroding the medial cortex. Computed tomography (CT) scan did not show any evidence of calcification, septations or involvement of soft tissue. Open biopsy and curettage was done and the specimen was sent for histopathological examination. Histopathological examination (HPE) showed a lobular pattern consisting of myxomatous

Lift the head and neck away from the shoulder. If no lesions are detected on this view, a caudomedial location should be suspected. The procedure should be repeated while rotating the humerus medially to bring the lesion into a caudal position. Both shoulders should be radiographed.. The typical radiographic appearance of OCD consists of an altered subchondral bone contour in the caudal aspect of the humeral head: an 1 to 2cm area of decreased radiodensity and irregular contour is observed. It may be surrounded by a sclerotic bone area characterised by increased radiodensity and loss of trabecular pattern. Occasionally, a thin radiopaque line, corresponding to mineralisation of the cartilage flap, is visible.. The radiographic image only translates the failure of mineralisation of the epiphyseal bone but yields little information regarding the nature and severity of cartilage damage. If osteochondrosis without osteochondritis is suspected, arthrography or arthroscopy may be necessary to confirm ...
