Cartilaginous lesions of the hand represent a spectrum of disease. Benign cartilage tumors in the hand and wrist occur much more frequently than malignant cartilage neoplasms. Treatment of enchondroma is tailored to the patient's symptoms and risk for pathologic fracture. Chondrosarcoma, although rare, does occur in the hand, particularly in patients with enchondromatosis, and it is best treated by en bloc resection.
