PathWays Case Study: June 6

A 58-year-old man presented with a growing, painful mass involving his right lower thigh. Pertinent clinical information included short stature, limb-length discrepancy, multiple enchondromas, and a hemangioma removed from his arm a few years ago. Imaging of the right lower extremity is shown (Figure 1). He was treated surgically with an above-the-knee amputation (gross, Figure 2). Histological features of the femoral lesion are shown below in Figure 3.
