Synovial Chondromatosis is an uncommon benign disease. The knee is most frequently affected, but SC has been described also at the foot and ankle. Patients present with complaints of pain, locking, instability of variable duration and a palpable mass. Diagnosis is often delayed until the time of surgery. In this case report we focus on the clinical signs, differential diagnosis and especially in pearls and pitfalls for the surgical procedure. Lateral approach for resection of the tumor improves the patient foot deformity and ambulation.
