Example text

Cells are in lacunae within fragments and single cells are very uncommon. The chondrocytes appear small and uniform. Chondromas of the hands and feet may be cellular and show more or less marked anisokaryosis and binucleation. Differential Diagnosis The differential diagnosis is low-grade malignant chondrosarcoma Comments Combined evaluation of radiological and cytological features is mandatory in order to avoid a false-positive diagnosis of low-grade malignant chondrosarcoma. This is especially important in tumours of the hands and feet.

Histopathology Chondromas are rather paucicellular tumours with abundant hyaline cartilaginous matrix. The chondrocytes are present within lacunae, have small nuclei and sometimes small nucleoli. The chondrocytes can be arranged in small clusters or are evenly distributed. Binucleated chondrocytes may occur. Typically, chondromas of the hands and feet are more cellular and may exhibit cellular pleomorphism with relatively marked anisokaryosis. Cytological Features See figure 27. There are cartilaginous tissue fragments, which appear red-purple in MGG and DiffQuick and pale, faintly pink, in wet-fixed smears.

D Compared to low-grade chondrosarcoma there is marked cellular and nuclear atypia. HE, medium magnification. cellular and nuclear pleomorphism with prominent nucleoli and occasional mitosis. Differential Diagnosis The differential diangnoses are: chondroma; chondroblastic osteosarcoma; chordoma, and metastastatic adenocarcinoma. Comments Most primary chondrosarcomas are easy to needle and the yield is often surprisingly high. Chondrosarcoma with reactive periosteal bone formation and heavily calcified tumours 38 are exceptions.
