Chondrolysis is necrosis and destruction of cartilage. It is a term usually seen in the literature presently due to exposure of cartilage to recognised toxins such as local anaesthetics[1][2]. It has been described after arthroscopy in situations where patients had implants/anchors or radiofrequency devices as well[3]. Idiopathic chondrolysis of the hip is a rare condition in children[4] and may be an autoimmune disease[5].
