Abstract

Diffused pigmented villonodular synovitis is a condition involving joints and tendons. It is rarely present in children. We report a case of a partial arthroscopic synovectomy operated successfully on a young patient's right knee with a follow-up at 24 months. A mini-invasive approach seems to be the first step to take when this kind of disease affects a child.
