Ollier disease enchondromatosis associated with ovarian juvenile granulosa cell tumor and precocious pseudopuberty.

The prognosis is dependent on the extent and severity of the disease. Biopsy of the lesions revealed increased cellularity, pleomorphic nuclei, and associated microcyst formation, all of which hinted towards a low grade fibrillary astrocytoma. Clinical Synopsis Toggle Dropdown.

Case 6 Case 6. Main biochemical alterations Slightly high PTH. In Spranger et al summarized six different classes of enchondromatosis based on radiographic features.

Lifelong monitoring is required in olliers patients given the risk of malignant transformation [ 6 ]. The diagnosis of Maffucci’s syndrome enchondromagosis established. The characteristic x-ray finding include multiple, radiolucent, homogenous oval or elongated lesions with a well defined slightly thickened bony margin [ 3 ].

Clinical presentation is usually with deformity and pain present only during periods of rapid growth 3,4. Typically the tumors involve the short bones of the hands and feet. Metaphyseal dysplasia Jansen’s metaphyseal chondrodysplasia Schmid metaphyseal chondrodysplasia. Inheritance Ollier disease and Maffucci syndrome are non-inherited disorders while spondyloenchondromatosis is inherited encuondromatosis an autosomal recessive disorder. Figure 2 and 3. J Bone Joint Surg Am.


Mahafza compared this case to several others reported previously, where patients with Olliers disease developed primary brain tumors, and suggested that a continuum exists between the multple of Mafucci Syndrome and Olliers Disease. Physical examination showed a marked shortening of both upper and lower limbs and cutaneous hemangioma in the legs.

Angular deformities and growth disturbances can be noticed, which result in shortening of the long bones, and inequality in the length of the legs. Treatment depends on the type of multople it may include surgery, amputation, bone grafting and sclerotherapy.

In the original description of Ollier disease, the enchondromas were predominantly confined to one side and limited to the limbs. Am J Med Genet. Osseous and chondromatous neoplasia Neoplasm stubs.

More interestingly, it has been reported that the PTHrP parathyroid hormone-related protein receptor has been implicated as a gene responsible for cases of enchondromatosis in patients with a family history of mild skeletal dysplasia in their male parents.

There is no medical treatment for enchondromatosis, but treatment of Ollier enchondormatosis is usually conservative.

Cortical erosion, pathological fracture and extension of the tumor into soft tissues can be considered as a sign of malignancy. Case report and review of the literature. Olliers disease and maffucci syndrome are usually non-familial disorders [ 3 ]. Classification of the Enchondromatoses In their classification of the enchondromatoses, Spranger et al.
