Case Study
The article presents a case study of a forty-seven-year-old man with a two-year history of right shoulder pain and generalized should discomfort. In this context, the authors describe a unique case of synovial chondromatosis in the shoulder following multiple recurrences with a repeatedly benign histologic appearance. However, abnormal results on deoxyribonucleic acid flow cytometry ultimately demonstrated histologic evidence of malignant transformation.
