Intracapsular chondroma is a rare lesion that has been reported under different names on 23 occasions. We describe a 52-year-old woman with intracapsular chondroma that involved the left knee. Radiologically, the mass was multilobulated, calcified, and sharply circumscribed and was lying between the patella and the anterolateral surface of the. Costochondritis (kos-toe-kon-DRY-tis) is an inflammation of the cartilage that connects a rib to the breastbone (sternum). Pain caused by costochondritis might mimic that of a heart attack or other heart conditions. Costochondritis is sometimes known as chest wall pain, costosternal syndrome or costosternal chondrodynia Enchondroma. Enchondromas, also known as chondromas 7 , are relatively common intramedullary cartilage neoplasms with benign imaging features. They share histologic features with low-grade chondrosarcoma, and are sometimes classified under the umbrella term low-grade chondral series tumors. Enchondromas account for the 'E' in the popular. Nodular Fasciitis is a common, fibrous, soft tissue lesion that usually occurs in the upper extremities of young people Pathology. Osteochondromas are considered a chondroid neoplasm and are primarily a part of the growth plate which separates and continues growing independently, without an associated epiphysis, usually away from the nearby joint. The medullary cavity is continuous with the parent bone, and hyaline cartilage caps them
Enchondroma is a benign indolent intramedullary hyaline cartilage neoplasm. Accounts for 10% of all benign osseous tumors. Limited growth, most lesions are less than 5 cm in maximal dimension. Bones grow from a cartilaginous growth plate that gradually lengthens and turns into bone as it lengthens. An enchondroma can be thought of as an island. Bizarre parosteal osteochondromatous proliferation (BPOP) is a rare lesion that occurs most commonly in the hands and feet. This lesion grows rapidly and has aggressive features on imaging studies as well as confusion findings on histopathology, leading to many errors in diagnosis and potentially inappropriate treatments Understanding Chordoma Ver en espa ñ ol | Voir en français | Blick auf Deutsch | Bekijk in het Nederlands | 用普通話查看.

Chondroma is a result of metaplasia in capsule or adjacent connective tissues that leads to the deposition of osteoid material in HFP . MRI high-contrast sequence images of the chondroma show a heterogeneous mass within the fat pad, with high signal of chondroid matrix and oedema, and low signal of calcification or ossification (Fig. 20 ) X-ray: In almost all cases, an osteochondroma can be diagnosed using an x-ray. An x-ray uses a small amount of radiation to produce pictures of a child's bones and organs. This helps to determine where the growth is located. Osteochondromas show up on the x-ray as a hard mass near the growth plate on a normal bone, which makes most easy to.

Blastic metastasis tends to present with.
Soft-Tissue Chondroma. Soft-tissue chondroma is a rare benign tumor that consists of a small nodule of cartilage without any connection to the underlying bone (2,4,14,15). It probably arises from the fibrous stroma rather than from mature cartilaginous or osseous tissue . These tumors may be found in patients of any age, but they are most. . Terminology. The entity subsumes that previously known as spontaneous osteonecrosis of the knee (SONK/SPONK) or Ahlbäck disease.Recognizing that spontaneous osteonecrosis of the knee was a misnomer and actually represents a subchondral insufficiency fracture that progressed to subchondral collapse with secondary osteonecrosis, the Society of Skeletal Radiology Subchondral Bone Nomenclature.

Opponensplasty EIP. Opposition of the thumb is the most important component of normal hand function. It is a complex movement requiring trapezio-metacarpal joint abduction, flexion and pronation. Thumb opposition requires the action of several muscles, those responsible for positioning the thumb and those providing compressive forces for pinch Synovial chondromatosis is a type of non-cancerous tumor that arises in the lining of a joint. The knee is most commonly affected, however it can affect any joint. The tumors begin as small nodules of cartilage. These nodules can separate and become loose within the joint. Some tumors may be no larger than a grain of rice. Synovial chondromatosis most commonly occurs in adults ages 20 to 50 Stage 3: Stage 3 is divided into 3A or 3B based on the size of the tumor, the lymph node involvement or grade (based on the type of soft tissue sarcoma). Stage 4 (metastatic): The tumor has spread to the lymph nodes in the extremities or to other parts of the body (for example, the lungs). Bone sarcoma stages Chondromalacia patella (knee pain) is the softening and breakdown of the tissue (cartilage) on the underside of the kneecap (patella). Pain results when the knee and the thigh bone (femur) rub together. Dull, aching pain and/or a feeling of grinding when the knee is flexed may occur. The most common way to treat symptoms of chondromalacia. Femoral anteversion or medial torsion of the femur is a condition that changes the alignment of the bones at the knee. This may lead to overuse injuries of the knee due to malalignment of the femur in relation to the patella and tibia. The Q-angle: or quadriceps angle is the geometric relationship between the pelvis, the tibia, the patella and the femur and is defined as the angle between the.
Osteochondroma is an overgrowth of cartilage and bone that happens at the end of the bone near the growth plate. Most often, it affects the long bones in the leg, the pelvis, or the shoulder blade. Osteochondroma is the most common noncancerous bone growth. It most often occurs between ages 10 and 30. It affects males and females equally Chondromalacia patellae symptoms. Pain around the knee. The pain is usually located at the front of the knee, around or behind the kneecap (patella). The pain is typically worse when going up or down stairs.

Ollier disease is a rare sporadic nonhereditary skeletal disorder in which typically benign cartilaginous tumors (enchondromas) develop near the growth plate cartilage.This is caused by cartilage rests that grow and reside within the metaphysis or diaphysis and eventually mineralize over time to form multiple enchondromas. Key signs of the disorder include asymmetry and shortening of the limb. Fabella. The fabella is an accessory ossicle most always found in the lateral head of the gastrocnemius, rarely can occur at the medial head of gastrocnemius 4 . It occurs in ~20% (range 10-30%) of the population 1 . The fabella can also be fibrocartilaginous in nature and is occasionally found in the medial head of the gastrocnemius

Myxoid chondrosarcoma has a median age at diagnosis of 50 years and is more commonly diagnosed in males than females at a ratio of approximately 2:1 (males:females). EMCS is found to arise in both the bone.
Chondrosarcoma is a type of sarcoma that affects the bones and joints. It is a rare cancer that accounts for about 20% of bone tumors and is diagnosed in approximately 600 patients each year in the United States. 1 Chondrosarcoma typically affects adults between the age of 20 and 60 years old, and it is more common in men. The disease usually starts in the bones of the arms, legs or pelvis. Ollier's disease is also called enchondromatosis (say en-kond-dro-ma-to-sis). It is a very rare bone disease which occurs in one in every 100,000 people. In this condition, areas of the bone are made of something called dense cartilage instead of proper bone. Cartilage is a special type of tissue found in lots of areas of the body
Greater and lesser trochanter fractures are rare and have good prognosis.
