Abstract: Chondroma is the most common neoplasia of the hand. Histologically, it consists of lobules of normal-appearing hyaline cartilage showing a lobular arrangement. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first reported case of chondroma of the hand in which, interestingly, osteoid production was observed.
