We present a female patient without any underlying disease. Progressive pain, and locking sensation of the right hip with limited range of motion were told and synovial chondromatosis (SC) of right hip was diagnosed. Radiographies revealed characteristic finding of SC including multiple calcified loose bodies within the right hip joint. Removal of cartilaginous fragments as well as nearly total synovectomy was performed arthroscopically on the right hip. Short-term postoperative follow-up of our patient revealed improved hip function and resolution of all symptoms.
