Periosteal Chondrosarcoma

Parosteal, or Juxtacortical Chondrosarcoma
  • Mario Campanacci


As central chondrosarcomas can be considered, for didactic purposes, the malignant counterpart of enchondromas, and peripheral chondrosarcomas that of exostoses, periosteal chondrosarcomas can be classified as the malignant counterpart of periosteal chondromas. Similarly to central and peripheral chondrosarcomas, this variety displays a rather well differentiated hyaline or myxoid cartilage throughout.
