Chondroblastoma in Adult
Characterized by moderate, persistent, localized joint pain, tenderness, and swelling, regardless of activity level. Other signs and symptoms may include a pathologic fracture, muscle atrophy, or a joint effusion or erosion of the joint.
Caution should be taken to rule out malignancy such as osteosarcoma or Ewing sarcoma. Management usually involves curettage with bone graft. Larger areas of bone destruction have been successfully reconstructed with osteoarticular allograft.
