Osteochondroma

slide 6 of 17


Comments:
The gross specimens of osteochondromas should be sectioned perpendicular to the bony stalk so that true thickness of the cartilaginous cap can be measured. The cap is usually 2 to 3 mm thick and has a smooth rounded surface. If the cap is irregularly thickened, especially in an adult, one should consider and rule out the possibility of secondary chondrosarcoma.
