Fibroma of the tendon sheath is an uncommon soft-tissue tumor. Intraarticular localization has not been previously reported. The patient presented with unexplained recurrent swelling of the knee not associated with recent trauma. The soft-tissue tumor was identified by magnetic resonance imaging. Arthroscopy confirmed the diagnosis. Arthrotomy was performed because of the large size of the lesion.
