Secondary synovial chondromatosis (SOC) is a disorder that results in intra-articular loose bodies as a result of trauma, osteoarthrosis, or neuropathic arthropathy. It is quite distinct to primary synovial chondromatosis. Pathologically concentric rings of growth may be seen.
Secondary osteochondromatosis typically demonstrates associated and more prominent changes of the underlying degenerative disease of the joint. Any intraarticular bodies tend to be larger, less numerous, and more varied in size ans shape than in primary synovial chondromatosis.
