Rice bodies are materials with an amorphous nucleus and a fibrin layer floating in the synovial space and occasionally periarticular bursae. These bodies have often been detected in patients with rheumatoid arthritis, tuberculous arthritis. But rice bodies are also observed in non specific synovitis without any underlying disease. After taking informed consent from patient for this study, we report a case of multiple rice bodies of different sizes intraarticular space of the left knee joint in 32 year old male for which we performed arthroscopic drainage of rice bodies and synovectomy done and results showed no evidence of inflammatory articular disease or infections including rheumatoid arthritis, tuberculosis, or bacterial or fungal infection and excellent result on follow up.
