REPARAZ, F.J. et al. Chondroblastoma of the carpal scaphoids. Anales Sis San Navarra [online]. 2008, vol.31, n.3, pp.295-300. ISSN 1137-6627.
A chondroblastoma is a benign tumour of cartilaginous origin which represents less than 1% of all primary osseous tumours. It is typically localised in the epiphysis of the long bones. Some 10% of chondroblastomas affect the bones of the foot and the hand. It is extremely rare for the seat of this lesion to be in the carpal bones. We present a case of chondroblastoma of the carpal scaphoids that was treated through curretage of the lesion and filling with autologous osseous graft from the iliac crest.
