Synovial osteochondromatosis is a rare condition, found mainly in larger joints, where as it is particularly rarer in small joints especially the metatarsophalangeal joint. We report the case of a 45-year-old man with primary synovial osteochondromatosis in the first metatarsophalangeal joint. Following surgical intervention, the diagnosis was confirmed with histological examination. The patient had successful management and is completely symptom free on 12-month review. A summary of the case and review of the current literature with the incidence of this condition and risks involved are discussed.
