A case of synovial osteochondromatosis in a synovial recess of the shoulder joint, which is considered to be a very rare condition, is presented. Different clinical and pathologic aspects of this condition are reviewed and discussed. Treatment consists of a surgical removal of the free loose osteocartilaginous bodies with a partial excision of the affected synovia. The condition did not recur.
