Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Synovial chondromatosis of the wrist is rare. We report the case of a 35-year-old man with synovial chondromatosis of the left wrist with an 8-year follow-up. Frequent recurrences finally resulted in total wrist arthrodesis. A review of the literature produced 24 case reports of synovial chondromatosis of the wrist with only three cases showing recurrence.
