AP radiograph of the femur of a 22-year-old male who presented with a symptomatic lesion on the surface of the femur which had a calcific shell at the peripheryand very little evidence of cortical erosion below. On biopsy it proved to be a periosteal chondroma that was simply excised during the biopsy procedure. There is concern about periosteal chondrosarcoma when these chondroid lesions are larger than 5 cm across.
