Part of the Medical Radiology book series (MEDRAD)


Bone tumours affecting the hand and wrist are rare. Only 2% of a series of 4,277 bone tumours were located in the hand or wrist. Furthermore, primary bone tumours are uncommon when compared with tumours arising in the soft tissues of the hand. Haber described 2,321 tumours of the hand with only 38 cases involving bone.
