This article describes a rare case of primary synovial chondromatosis of the hip associated with active tuberculosis of the hip. Twenty four years old patient underwent total hip replacement at our institution. No reactivation of the infection was detected in the four-years follow-up. Clinical and radiological evaluation of our material showed that joint space widening may be the first sign in synovial chondromatosis of the hip. Importantly, if the tuberculosis infection is suspected we have to take the material for bacteriological investigation, regardless of others, obvious diagnosis.
