Pediatric Chondroblastoma

  • Etiology: benign cartilaginous neoplasm
  • Imaging:
    — Location (eccentric in epiphysis or in apophysis)
    — Lytic with thin sclerotic rim with intralesional calcification in 50%
    — Matrix (chondroid)
    — Zone of transition (narrow)
    — Periosteal new bone distant to lesion is distinctive amongst epiphyseal lesion
