In this report, we presented a 49 year-old master athlete with synovial osteochondromatosis of the knee joint.
His main complaints were pain and limitation of movement. Both intraarticular (posterior recess) and extraarticular (popliteal bursa, semimembranosus tendon) involvements were present in the affected knee. He initially refused the surgery, therefore a conservative treatment was planned. However symptomatic relief was temporary, and after 2 years he inevitably experienced arthroscopic surgery. Returning to sports was achieved, but it was not at previous level.
Symptomatic or radiological recurrence was not observed at 18 months follow-up. The presence of extraarticular osteochondromatosis in semimembranosus tendon have been firstly described in the literature

Key words:

synovial osteochondromatosis, athlete, knee
