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.

dyschondroplasia

(1) A nonspecific term for any defect in chondrogenesis that extends into the metaphysis and diaphysis.
