Summary: Material and methods: A total of 150 patients with chondroma, including 90 women and 60 men aged 10-74 years, were treated in the Regional Trauma Surgery Hospital in Piekary Śląskie between 1998 and 2006.
Results: The tumours were mostly located in phalanges of the fingers – 55 cases (37%), and metacarpal bones – 21 cases (14%). Multiple locations were seen in 13 patients. A total of 170 surgical procedures were performed, mostly (120 procedures) tumour resections with bone graft implantation. A recurrence of chondroma was observed in 17 patients (11%). There was also one case of malignant transformation into a chondrosarcoma. Conclusions: Total resection of the tumour combined with spongy bone grafting is the main treatment of chondroma.
