Nine patients with enchondromas in the hand were treated by endoscopic curettage of the tumour without bone grafting. The procedure was performed on an out-patient basis using axillary block anaesthesia. New bone formation and remodelling of the lesions were observed in all patients. There were no postoperative fractures, infections, recurrences or other complications. Functional recovery was rapid. We conclude that endoscopic curettage without bone grafting is an effective treatment of enchondroma in the hand.
