Chondrocalcinosis - Definition



Definition


Chondrocalcinosis is a disease of the cartilage which affects middle-aged adults. It is characterized by a deposit of calcium in the joints and mainly affects the knees, and more rarely the hips, elbows, and shoulders. In general, chondrocalcinosis affects both limbs simultaneously and symmetrically. It is responsible for pain in the affected joints and treatments are designed to alleviate this pain. Radiography enables the detection of calcium deposits that appear as fine lines at the edges of the joints; a sample of the joint fluid may confirm the diagnosis if necessary.
