Periosteal chondroma in Child
The precise cause is unknown. Patients with periosteal chondroma are typically asymptomatic. In some patients, symptoms include pain, swelling, palpable mass, or broken bone. Pain as a symptom may be an indication of a malignant tumor. In most cases, periosteal chondromas do not spread to other body parts, but they may continue to grow; some may become cancerous in adulthood.
Surgical excision of the tumor is curative.
