A 19-year-old male presented with a palpable mass of the right fourth toewith tenderness for one year. A radiology examination revealed multiple, radio-lucent lesions with mild cortical irregularity. The magneticresonance imaging findings were chondrogenic tumors with multiple, well-defined T1-low and T2-high signal enhanced lesions involvedin the fourth proximal, middle, and distal phalanges. The tumors were removed by a surgical resection and curettage. Histologically, thetumors were proven to be periosteal chondroma.
