From the analysis of the thirteen cases studied, it must be concluded that symmetrical synovitis of the knee may be due to tuberculosis, trauma, or some infectious agency of a non-tubercular or non-syphilitic nature. However, symmetrical synovitis of the knee, chronic in nature, free from marked discomfort, and without bony thickening, which permits almost painless motion of the joints during the course of the disease, and an ultimate excellent functional result, is due probably to hereditary syphilis.
