Cartilaginous tumours of the extremities are commonly seen in radiographs. Enchondroma is the most frequently encountered tumour. Since the vast majority of enchondromas are asymptomatic, they are typically discovered as incidental findings or along with a pathologic fracture. The authors propose a pictorial review to illustrate the imaging features of cartilaginous bone lesions of the hand and their specificities, and discuss the main differential diagnoses.
