Bone-forming lesions and cartilage-forming lesions are the most common primary tumors of the bone. They are classified according to their biological potential as benign (chondroblastoma, chondromyxoid fibroma, enchondroma, osteochondroma, periosteal chondroma) and malignant (chondrosarcoma, clear cell chondorsarcoma, mesenchymal chondrosarcoma, dedifferentiated chondrosarcoma) and as to their anatomic location (central/intramedullary, or peripheral ...
