Chondritis is a general term which means 'inflammation of the cartilage joint surface'.


Chondritis or chondrosis?

Probably the term 'chondrosis' should be used instead of 'chondritis', as 'itis' means 'inflamed', and cartilage softens and degenerates under stress rather than becoming 'inflamed'. Chondrosis just implies that there is an abnormal process going on in the joint cartilage.
