Synovial chondromatosis is a benign pathology, which is characterized by synovial metaplasia that produces cartilaginous bodies. Its location at the temporo- mandibular joint (TMJ) is infrequent. Clinical manifestations are not specific. The diagnosis is mainly through imaging. The treatment is surgical by arthrotomy or arthroscopy. We report a case of synovial chondromatosis of TMJ, revealed by a painful swelling of the temporo-mandibular region.
