AP radiograph of the proximal femur of a 12-year-old female shows an asymptomatic, calcifying mass arising from the medial surface of the base of the femoral neck just above the lesser trochanter. It has a calcific pattern that would suggest a cartilaginous tumor and on excisional biopsy it turned out to be a periosteal chondroma.
