Primary synovial chondromatosis is a rare, benign condition which affects the synovial membranes. It commonly involves knee, elbow and hip in young adults but is rare in shoulder. We reviewed a rare case of synovial chondromatosis of the shoulder. A young female came to our hospital with pain and swelling at right shoulder joint. Radiograph, ultrasound and MRI with contrast were obtained. It helped to make a diagnosis of synovial chondromatosis. The shoulder was operated and multiple oval loose bodies measuring up to 8 mm were removed. Partial synovectomy was done.
