Enchondroma protuberans is a long-bone exophytic enchondroma. This kind of tumor is very uncommon. There are only 7 cases reported in the literature. Of these, 2 involved the hand. A case of enchondroma protuberans of the middle phalanx of the left little finger is reported. The tumor was treated by marginal resection and intramedullary curettage. Diagnostic tests included clinical examination, X-rays, and MRI.

Key words: enchondroma, tumors, hand.
