Abstract

Two children presented with painful lytic lesions in the lower extremity. The lesions were located within cortical bone, and surrounded by sclerosis of the medullary bone and periosteal new bone formation. The lesions were painful, and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory agents relieved the pain. CT-guided core biopsies were performed followed by radiofrequency treatment. Pathologic evaluation of the specimens revealed features consistent with benign intracortical chondroma. In one case radiofrequency treatment appears to have cured the tumor. The other patient required operative intervention.
