Synovial chondromatosis is the rare and benign metaplasia of the synovial membrane resulting in the formation of multiple intra-articular cartilaginous bodies. This study was conducted on 28 years old male who was suffering from severe pain and limitations of motion in right shoulder since 2 years ago, which developed gradually, accompanied with night pain. Previous results and available literature suggested the use of arthrotomy or arthroscopy for the treatment of synovial chondromatosis of shoulder. In present study also both the treatment methods are effective but lesion open arthrotomies are found more effective due to some cases related to extension. Further, it was concluded that better results can be obtained on the early intervention of disease.
