Description:

Similar to Ollier’s disease with multiple enchondromas in bones and there are also hemangiomas and lymphangiomas.

My Approach:

My approach to Maffucci Syndrome is similar to Ollier’s Disease, however it needs to be followed much more closely as the boney lesions and the hemangiomas/lymphangiomas have up to a 30% chance of the patient developing a malignancy. The patient also must be followed by a general surgeon/Gynecologist due to increased risk of pancreatic and ovarian cancer. The patient also must be followed by a neurosurgeon due to the risk of CNS (brain) tumors.

Cause:

Similar genetics to Ollier’s disease.

Diagnosis Methods:

A diagnosis can be made in a clinical setting and radiographically.

Treatments:

Similar to those performed on patients with Ollier’s Disease.
