STUDY DESIGN: A case report of vertebral synovial osteochondromatosis with compressive myelopathy. OBJECTIVES: To describe the clinical, radiologic, and histopathologic features of vertebral facet synovial osteochondromatosis with compressive myelopathy. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA: There has been only one previously reported case of synovial osteochondromatosis affecting the vertebral facet joint and no previous report of associated compressive myelopathy. METHODS: The case history, radiology, surgical findings, and histopathology are reviewed. RESULTS: Vertebral facet synovial osteochondromatosis is a potential and readily manageable cause of spinal cord compression. CONCLUSIONS: Synovial osteochondromatosis of the vertebral facet joint should be considered as a cause of compressive myelopathy.
