 Synonyms & Historicals
Chondroma .
Chondromas .
Enchondromas .
Enchondroma .
A benign neoplasm derived from mesodermal cells that form cartilage. It may remain within the substance of a cartilage or bone (true chondroma or enchondroma) or may develop on the surface of a cartilage (ecchondroma or ecchondrosis). (Dorland, 27th ed; Stedman, 25th ed) .
Chondromatosis .
Chondromatoses .
Multiple formation of chondromas. (Dorland, 27th ed) .

Osteocartilaginous Exostosis .
Osteochondromas .
Chondrosteoma .
Exostosis, Osteocartilaginous .
Exostosis, Cartilaginous .
A cartilage-capped benign tumor that often appears as a stalk on the surface of bone. It is probably a developmental malformation rather than a true neoplasm and is usually found in the metaphysis of the distal femur, proximal tibia, or proximal humerus. Osteochondroma is the most common of benign bone tumors. .
Chondrosarcoma .
Chondrosarcomas .
A slowly growing malignant neoplasm derived from cartilage cells, occurring most frequently in pelvic bones or near the ends of long bones, in middle-aged and old people. Most chondrosarcomas arise de novo, but some may develop in a preexisting benign cartilaginous lesion or in patients with ENCHONDROMATOSIS. (Stedman, 25th ed) .
Chondroblastoma .
Chondroblastomas .
A usually benign tumor composed of cells which arise from chondroblasts or their precursors and which tend to differentiate into cartilage cells. It occurs primarily in the epiphyses of adolescents. It is relatively rare and represents less than 2% of all primary bone tumors. The peak incidence is in the second decade of life; it is about twice as common in males as in females. (From Dorland, 27th ed; Holland et al., Cancer Medicine, 3d ed, p1846) .
Chondrus .
Carrageen .
Chondrus crispus .
Carrageens .
Irish Moss .
Irish Mosses .
Mosses, Irish .
Moss, Irish .
A genus of RED ALGAE, in the family Gigartinaceae. The species Chondrus crispus is a source of CARRAGEENAN. .
