What is Synovitis?
Synovitis is inflammation of the synovial membrane that lines a joint capsule. The result is swelling with pain. It is associated with rheumatic disease, injury or infection (e.g. chronic tuberculosis). The treatment depends on the cause of the condition, and often a sample of the synovia is taken for examination.
