Synovial chondromatosis and instability of the proximal tibiofibular joint.

A patient with synovial chondromatosis involving both posterior compartments of the right knee and proximal tibiofibular joint had continued pain and weakness after partial synovectomy. The "Helfet Test" for proximal tibiofibular joint instability was positive; the fibular head was prominent and tender. Following excision of the proximal fibula, the patient was symptom free. This case demonstrates that it is essential to evaluate all joints involved with a disease process prior to surgical intervention.[1]
