Because of concern about possible secondary chondrosarcoma, the pathologist looked for this but found only benign-appearing enchondromatosis in all of the phalanges. The instance of secondary chondrosarcoma in Maffucci's syndrome is much higher than in Ollier's disease -- approximately 50-70% of cases.
