Abstract

Olliers disease is a non-familial condition affecting 1:100000 (1,2). It is characterized by the presence of multiple enchondromas affecting small tubular bones of the hands, feet and other tubular long bones and flat bones. Malignant transformation of these enchondromas is as high as 5 – 50% (1,2). While cases of de novo chondrosarcomas involving the vertebral body pedicles causing cord compression and neurological deficit have been well documented. We present a rare case of Olliers disease with chondrosarcoma of the rib head who presented with paraparesis secondary to extradural cord compression with intracanalicular extension.
