AP radiograph of the femur of a 42-year-old male who had no symptoms of any type in his thigh area shows a small, calcifying surface lesion located on the posterior cortex of the femoral diaphysis. Located in the medullary canal just above this lesion, there is a calcifying enchondroma that is not in contact with the surface periosteal chondroma. Because there is no continuity between the two lesions, the diagnosis of chondrosarcoma is ruled out.
