Synovial chondromatosis is an uncommon benign disorder that is most often occurring in adults. It is an exceedingly rare condition in children. We are describing an unreported cause of knee swelling in an infant. Clinical and radiological evaluation revealed that the symptoms were due to a synovial chondromatosis of the knee joint. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first report describing a knee synovial chondromatosis in an infant patient. Synovial chondromatosis should be included in the differential diagnosis of knee swelling during infancy. Greater physician awareness of such condition together with a high index of suspicion is crucial for diagnosis.
