Primary synovial chondromatosis is a rare disorder, and involvement of the shoulder joint is extremely rare. The clinical symptoms are usually nonspecific, and therefore, the clinical diagnosis of synovial chondromatosis of the shoulder may be difficult and delayed. Loose bodies in the joint can cause severe pain, locking and if neglected can lead to subluxation or secondary degenerative osteoarthritis of the shoulder. In our case report of synovial chondromatosis of the shoulder, an arthroscopic synovectomy and removal of the loose bodies resulted in complete recovery and no reoccurrence in a follow-up of more than 1 year.
