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.

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)

Synovial chondromatosis of the subcoracoid bursa. (1/32)

Synovial chondromatosis, is the chondroid metaplasia of the synovial membrane. Large joints such as the knee and hip are most commonly involved. Extraarticular involvement is rarely described. Synovial chondromatosis may be associated with impingement syndrome of the shoulder. We report a case of synovial chondromatosis of the subcoracoid bursa, which resulted in impingement symptoms.  (+info)

Synovial chondromatosis: the possible role of FGF 9 and FGF receptor 3 in its pathology. (2/32)

Primary synovial chondromatosis (PSC) is a rare disorder of the synovium typified by cartilaginous nodule formation within the synovial membrane. Fibroblast growth factor receptor 3 (FGFR3) is a recently described specific marker of mesenchymal precartilaginous stem cells. Expression patterns of FGFR3 and its specific ligand, fibroblast growth factor 9 (FGF 9), were evaluated both in situ and in cell cultures. Histologically, cells at the periphery of the cartilage nodules express FGFR3 and PCNA (proliferating cell nuclear antigen). Elevated levels of FGF 9, its specific ligand, have been found in synovial fluids of patients with synovial chondromatosis. Synoviocytes but not chondrocytes from affected patients express FGF9 in culture. This pattern is absent in normal synovium and cartilage. Downregulation of FGF9 may provide a possible nonoperative therapy for PSC.  (+info)

Fine-needle aspiration cytology of articular and periarticular lesions. (3/32)

BACKGROUND: The cytologic diagnosis of joint and articular surface-based lesions traditionally has been accomplished by examination of fluids or effusions. Although exfoliative cytology remains an accurate diagnostic test, not all joint-based lesions will produce effusions that are amenable to this type of examination. Fine-needle aspiration (FNA) represents an excellent alternative to traditional cytologic or histologic methods of diagnosis in joint pathology. METHODS: The authors reviewed FNA materials for the period 1992-2001 from lesions of joint spaces and periarticular soft tissues. All diagnoses based on cytologic materials that were included in this study were confirmed with histologic follow-up. Cytologic and histologic materials were prepared using standard methods. RESULTS: The authors found six relatively common lesions that were amenable to diagnosis by FNA. These included rheumatoid nodule, gouty tophi, ganglion cysts, pigmented villonodular synovitis, synovial chondromatosis, and synovial sarcoma. There are potential pitfalls in discriminating gout from pseudogout and synovial chondromatosis from chondrosarcoma. CONCLUSIONS: In most instances, mass-producing lesions of the joint space or the periarticular soft tissues can be diagnosed successfully by FNA. The common lesions are easily recognizable and are cytologically distinctive.  (+info)

Idiopathic synovial osteochondromatosis of the hip: radiographic and MR appearances in 15 patients. (4/32)

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the radiographic and MR appearance of idiopathic synovial osteochondromatosis of the hip. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Radiographs and MR images of 15 patients with idiopathic synovial osteochondromatosis of the hip were assessed. The former were analysed in terms of the presence of 1) juxta-articular calcified and/ or ossified bodies, 2) osteophytes, 3) bone erosion, 4) juxta-articular osteopenia, and 5) joint space narrowing, while for the latter, analysis focused on 1) the configuration of intra-articular bodies, 2) bone erosion, 3) synovial thickening, 4) conglomeration of intra-articular bodies, and 5) extra-articular extension. RESULTS: At hip radiography, juxta-articular calcified and/ or ossified bodies were seen in 12 of the 15 patients (80%), bone erosion in eight (53%), osteophytes in seven (47%), juxta-articular osteopenia in five (33%) and joint space narrowing in five (33%). In eight patients (53%), MR imaging depicted intra-articular bodies of focal low signal intensity at all pulse sequences, and areas of isointensity at T1WI and hyperintensity at T2WI. In three (20%), intra-articular bodies of focal low signal intensity and areas of hyperintensity at all pulse sequences were observed, with areas of iso-intensity at T1WI and hyperintensity at T2WI, while in four (27%), intra-articular bodies of only focal low signal intensity at all pulse sequences were apparent. Synovial thickening was present in 13 patients (87%), bone erosion in 11 (73%), conglomeration of the intra-articular bodies in 11 (73%), and an extra-articular herniation sac in six (40%). CONCLUSION: The most common radiographic finding of synovial osteochondromatosis of the hip was the presence of juxta-articular calcified and/ or ossified bodies. MR imaging depicted intra-articular bodies of focal low signal intensity at all pulse sequences, with areas of iso-intensity at T1WI and hyperintensity at T2WI. In addition, the presence of an extra-articular herniation sac was not uncommon.  (+info)

Synovial chondromatosis of the hip: management with arthroscope-assisted synovectomy and removal of loose bodies: report of two cases. (5/32)

Primary synovial chondromatosis is an uncommon disorder, and involvement of the hip joint is rare. The clinical symptoms are usually non-specific, and a clinical diagnosis of synovial chondromatosis of the hip may be difficult and delayed, especially before the ossifying nodules become evident. Loose bodies in the joint can cause secondary degenerative osteoarthritis of the hip. Currently, the recommended management is surgical removal of the loose bodies and a synovectomy without dislocation of the hip joint. Herein we report on 2 cases of synovial chondromatosis of the hip, which were managed with an arthroscope-assisted synovectomy and removal of the loose bodies. We believe this is an easy and safe method for management of this disorder.  (+info)

Articular chondromatosis and chrondroid metaplasia in transgenic TAg mice. (6/32)

The C3(1)/SV40 T antigen transgenic mouse model for which rapid mammary and prostate tumor development has been documented uses the FVB/N mouse as a background strain. In this study, where the background strain used was the C57BL/6J mouse, neither mammary nor prostate tumors developed over periods of up to 40 weeks. However, a disturbance of hyaline cartilage in joints was observed similar to that found in synovial chondromatosis in humans. In addition, cartilage thickening in the external ears and cartilaginous metaplasia of the ascending aorta also occurred. This suggests that rearrangement of the transgene occurred in breeding on the C57BL background, thus modifying its expression. It raises the possibility that the genetic changes induced by the SV40 T antigen transforming sequence are important in cartilage homeostasis.  (+info)

Synovial chondromatosis of the temporomandibular joint: a clinical, radiological and histological study. (7/32)

Synovial chondromatosis (SC) is a cartilaginous metaplasy of the mesenchymal remnants of the synovial tissue of the joints. It is characterized by the formation of cartilaginous nodules in the synovium and inside the articular space (loose bodies). SC mainly affects to big synovial joints such as the knee and the elbow, being uncommon the onset within the TMJ, where 75 cases have been published. The main symptoms are pain, inflammation, limitation of the movements of the jaw and crepitation. Different methods of diagnosis include panoramic radiograph, CT, MR and arthroscopy of the TMJ. We report a new case of unilateral SC of the TMJ, including diagnostic images, treatment performed and histological analysis.  (+info)

Synovial chondromatosis of the temporomandibular joint with extension to the middle cranial fossa. (8/32)

A rare case of synovial chondromatosis with extension to the middle cranial fossa is reported. Synovial chondromatosis, a benign disorder characterized by multiple cartilaginous, free-floating nodules that originate from the synovial membrane is not exclusive to the temporomandibular joint (TMJ). This condition is commonly seen in the axial skeleton and can involve multiple joints. In this case, synovial chondromatosis of the TMJ led to complete bony erosion of the glenoid fossa extending into the middle cranial fossa. Although plain radiographs showed the involvement of the joint, Computed Tomography (CT) and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) provided more detailed information about the lesion in all three dimensions. This case demonstrates the value of CT and MRI in both the diagnosis and treatment planning. A review of previously reported cases of synovial chondromatosis with cranial extensions is included.  (+info)

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
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.

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 osteochondromatosis (SOC) is a benign proliferation of the synovium. Etiology is unknown. In this condition, cartilaginous metaplasia takes place within the synovial membrane of the joint. Metaplastic synovium organizes into nodules. With minor trauma, nodules are shed as small bodies into the joint space. In some patients the disease process may involve tendon sheaths and bursal sacs.. Cartilaginous intra-articular bodies float freely within the synovial fluid, which they require for nutrition and growth. Progressive enlargement and ossification occur with time. If they remain free, they continue to grow larger and more calcified. In severe cases, they may occupy the entire joint space or penetrate to adjacent tissues. Alternately, they can deposit in the synovial lining, reestablish a blood supply, and become replaced by bone. On occasion, synovial reattachment can lead to complete reabsorption of the cartilage fragment.. ...

There are two methods of removing the body; the first and simpler method is applicable when the body can be palpated, usually in the supra-patellar pouch; it is preferably transfixed by a needle and can then be removed through a small incision; otherwise, the joint must be freely opened and explored, firstly to find the body and further to remove it.. The characters of this type of loose body are remarkably constant. It is usually solitary, about the size of a bean or almond, concavo-convex in shape, the convex aspect being smooth like an articular surface, the concave aspect uneven and nodulated and showing reparative changes, healing over of the raw surface, and the new formation of fibrous tissue, hyaline cartilage and bone, the necessary nutriment being derived from the synovial fluid (Fig. 167). The body is sometimes found to be lodged in a defect or excavation in one of the articular surfaces, usually the medial condyle of the femur, from which it is readily shelled out by means of an ...
This is an interpretation by the KNEEguru of an article published in the medical literature in 1991.

Case report: J C M, 15 years-old, female, Caucasian, student. She was sent to a Rheumatologist along with a diagnosis of juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA). The patient presented, for one year, a mild pain of insidious onset in her right shoulder, with relief of the symptoms in two days under nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory therapy (NSAIDs). During this year, the patient presented five or six episodes of pain with the same characteristics. No other signs and symptoms were related. ...
Background: Tracheobronchopathia osteochondroplastica (TO) is a pulmonary orphan disease and consists at the presence of multiple osseous or cartilaginous nodules localised in the submucosa of the tracheobronchial wall. These nodules protrude into the lumen of the trachea and the large bronchi, leading to the airway obstruction.The disease does not involve other organs.. Method: We studied in retrospective all cases of TO diagnosed with fiberoptic bronchoscopy for the period 2001 - 2011. In our hospital we realise aproximately 1200 bronchocopies per year.. Results: We found 17 cases, 52 % were female and 48 % male. The average age was 40.6 years, 42 % were smokers (∼40 UPA) without family history for TO. The duration of symptoms till the diagnostic was 2.3 years. The most frequent symptoms were: cough 100 %, sputum 64 %, dyspnea 41 %, haemoptisis 5 %, and erythema nodosa 5 %. The laboratory findings demonstrate an increase of sediment in 58 % of cases, 11 % leucocytosis and all the others were ...

Y1 - 2014/1. N2 - In children, avascular necrosis of the femoral head occurs easily because of the difference in the domination of blood flow compared with that in adults. Here we report a rare case of a 12-year-old girl who sustained a femoral neck fracture. The femoral head collapsed after open reduction and internal fixation. The hip developed into subluxation because of the gradually enlarged loose body in association with avascular necrosis. These results might be explained by the fact that blood circulation from the ligamentum teres temporarily increases during the ages of 8-12 years..

Pseudogout is a type of arthritis that, as the name implies, can cause symptoms similar to gout, but which are a reaction to a different type of crystal deposit. This type of arthritis may be one of the most misunderstood forms, and is often mistaken for gout and other conditions, including RA. Proper diagnosis is important because untreated pseudogout may lead to a severe form of joint degeneration and ongoing inflammation, resulting in chronic disability.. Pseudogout develops when deposits of calcium pyrophosphate crystals accumulate in a joint. Initially, crystals deposit in the cartilage and can cause damage. They also can cause a reaction with inflammation that leads to joint pain and swelling. This can cause more chronic arthritis that mimics osteoarthritis or RA. Knees are most often involved, but wrists, shoulders, ankles, elbows, and hands can be affected. Ultimately, a patient with pseudogout could be incapacitated for days or weeks.. ...

Forty patients (156 metacarpophalangeal joints) with mutilating rheumatoid arthritis were randomly allocated in a blinded manner to have either NeuFlex or Sutter implants. Indications for operation were pain and severe deformity. Thirty-nine patients were followed up postoperatively for one year. An independent physiotherapist and occupational therapist examined each one. Grip strength, range of motion, and pain during activity and at rest were measured. The Canadian Occupational Performance Measure (COPM) assessed the patients evaluation of their occupational performance. Both groups had overall good results, but it seems that though patients mobility and grip strength improve considerably, pain seems to do so only relatively. Most patients seem to be satisfied with the operation and their functional gain. Five out of 78 Sutter and two out of 78 NeuFlex implants broke. We found no major differences between the two designs, but the patients in the NeuFlex group seemed to be more satisfied with ...
