Lateral radiograph of the knee of a 16-year-old male shows a totally asymptomatic, calcifying surface lesion on the posterior aspect of the distal femoral diaphysis. The calcification is located mostly on the surface of the lesion, similar to a blister on the surface of bone, with no evidence of cortical erosion. On excisional biopsy, this lesion proved to be a periosteal chondroma.
