en·chon·dro·ma·to·sis

(en-kon'drō-ma-tō'sis), [MIM*166000 *225795]
A rare disorder characterized by hamartomatous proliferation of cartilage in the metaphyses of several bones, most commonly of the hands and feet, causing distorted growth in length and pathologic fractures; chondrosarcoma may develop. When enchondromatosis is associated with hemangiomas in the cutaneous or visceral regions, the condition is called Maffucci syndrome. Most cases are sporadic but a few instances demonstrate autosomal dominant inheritance with reduced penetrance.

enchondromatosis

/en·chon·dro·ma·to·sis/ (en-kon″dro-mah-to´sis) hamartomatous proliferation of cartilage cells within the metaphysis of several bones, causing thinning of the overlying cortex and distortion of the growth in length; it may undergo malignant transformation.

enchondromatosis

[en′kəndrō′mətō′sis]
Etymology: Gk, en + chondros, cartilage, oma, tumor, osis, condition
a congenital disorder characterized by the proliferation of cartilage within the extremity of the shafts of bones, causing thinning of the cortex and distortion in length. Also called dyschondroplasia, Ollier's disease. Compare Maffucci's syndrome.

en·chon·dro·ma·to·sis

(en'kon-drō-mă-tō'sis)
A rare familial, and probably hamartomatous, proliferation of cartilage in the metaphyses of several bones, most commonly of the hands and feet, causing distorted growth in length or pathologic fractures; chondrosarcoma frequently develops. When combined with hemangiomas in the cutaneous or visceral regions, it is called Maffucci syndrome.
Synonym(s): dyschondroplasia.

2) Although they usually occur spontaneously, they may also arise as a result of malignant degeneration of an endochondroma, as seen in both Maffucci syndrome (a mesodermal dysplasia that causes enchondromas and hemangiomas) and Ollier disease (which manifests as multiple enchondromas).
