Synovial chondromatosis is a rare disease. The knee is the most commonly affected joint but the shoulder joint is very rarely affected. We report typical synovial chondromatosis of the shoulder joint which was managed by arthroscopic removal of multiple loose bodies, synovectomy, good objective and functional outcome was obtained until postoperative 7-year follow-up. Arthroscopy can be used as an effective and useful therapeutic method for synovial chondromatosis of the shoulder joint.
