Abstract The case presented is a 22-year-old man with previously treated synovial chondromatosis of the shoulder. He subsequently presented with pain and tenderness above the biceps tendon. Magnetic resonance imaging and radiographs revealed recurrent synovial chondromatosis in the biceps tendon sheath. The patient underwent an open procedure to remove the loose bodies and partial tenosynovectomy. The patient has subsequently done well and resumed normal activities. To our knowledge there are no reported cases of synovial chondromatosis involving the biceps tendon sheath in the literature.
