Abstract Synovial chondromatosis rarely occurs in the foot. Five patients with synovial chondromatosis in the foot were treated with excision. There were four men and one woman with a mean age of 37 years (range, 19-58 years). Mineral densities adjacent to the joint were seen on radiographs of all patients. Synovial chondromatosis occurred in the calcaneocuboid, tibiotalar, naviculocuneiform, and metatarsophalangeal joints. A painful mass was the common initial presentation in all patients. The patients were followed up for an average of 5 years (range, 3-16 years) after arthrotomy and excision. All patients were relieved of symptoms and retained normal function. There was no clinical or radiographic evidence of recurrence.
