Primary synovial chondromatosis is an uncommon disorder, in which involvement of the hip joint is still rare. Clinical symptoms are usually non-specific, clinical diagnosis of synovial chondromatosis of the hip may be difficult and delayed, especially before the ossifying nodules become evident. Currently, the recommended management is surgical removal of the loose bodies and synovectomy without dislocating the hip joint. We report a case of synovial chondromatosis of the hip in a 70 year old male patient, managed with an open synovectomy and removal of the loose bodies. We opine this is an easy and safe method for management of this disorder.
