Abstract

Chondral tumors are the most frequent bone neo-plasms [1]. They are mainly classified as benign and malignant tumors or chondrosarcomas. Benign tumors are much more frequent than chondrosarcomas, which comprise about 7% of all bone tumors and 10–12.5% of malignant bone tumors [1,2], being the second most frequent malignant tumor. Most benign tumors are classified as chondromas and are subclassified, according to their location, as enchondromas (central), periosteal (juxtacortical), and osteochondromas (osteocartilaginous exostosis). The enchondromas and osteochondromas can be solitary or multiple. Besides the chondromas, two other benign tumor entities have been delineated, namely, the chondroblastoma and the chondromyxoid fibroma.
