What is Chondrocalcinosis?

Description of the disease

Chondrocalcinosis (or pseudogout) is a rare disease characterized by the deposition of calcium crystals in the cartilage of the joints, leading to inflammation and joint destruction.


Chondrocalcinosis is classified as a deposition disease related to calcium metabolism.


  • Joint pain
  • Swelling and redness in the affected joint area
  • Limitation of mobility


The cause of chondrocalcinosis is an excess of calcium in the body, leading to the formation of crystals in the joints.


Diagnosis of the disease involves X-rays, ultrasound or MRI of the joints, and analysis of joint fluid.


Treatment of chondrocalcinosis aims to reduce inflammation and pain, improve joint mobility, and prevent the formation of new crystals.


To prevent chondrocalcinosis, it is recommended to maintain a healthy lifestyle, control calcium levels in the body, and avoid overeating calcium-rich foods.


The diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of chondrocalcinosis are carried out by a rheumatologist.
