Periosteal chondrosarcoma is a rare tumor. It can be difficult to diagnose radiographically and pathologically and can be confused with periosteal osteosarcoma; however, the treatment of these two lesions is quite different. Increased awareness of imaging features of this lesion, particularly those that can help differentiate it from other surface-based tumors, can help one recognize this entity. We report the case of a periosteal chondrosarcoma in a young woman, highlighting the diagnostic imaging features of this disease, and her treatment with a joint-sparing geometric resection of the distal femur, using patient-specific 3D-printed cutting guides and matched allograft reconstruction.
