The condition in which multiple enchondromatosis is associated with soft tissue hemangiomas is known as Maffucci syndrome. Lifelong monitoring is required in olliers patients given the risk of malignant transformation [ 6 ].

Magnetic resonance imaging demonstrates lobulated lesions with intermediate signal intensity on T2- weighted images and predominantly high signal intensity on T2- weighted sequences. InBhargava et al further delineated some of the syndromes and distinguished non-hereditary and hereditary forms.
