Bone tumors of the hands are uncommon. However, cartilaginous tumors such as enchondromas are occasionally encountered. Other tumors such as osteoma, osteoid osteoma and osteoblastoma may also occur but are uncommon. Other fibrous, vascular and neural tumors are rare. The radiological characteristics of these tumors including giant cell tumor and aneurysmal bone cysts are described. This pictorial essay is mostly restricted to conventional radiographs.
