* Vowing of long bones * Retarded growth * Endochondromata * Hemangiomata * Capillary hemangiomata
The cause of this syndrome is unclear. It has no familial pattern of inheritance and appears sporadically.
In Ollier disease isolated enchondromas are present without the presence of hemangiomas.
Management entails careful examination and monitoring for malignant degenerations. Surgical interventions can correct or minimize deformities.
