Synovial chondromatosis of the small joints of the hand is rare. Here, we present a case of synovial chondromatosis in the metacarpophalangeal joint that did not show calcification on radiographs. Synovectomy and resection of cartilagenous loose bodies was successful and there was no recurrence after eight months.
