In the present examination, we detected type I collagen mRNA in neoplastic chondrocytes in osteochondromas, typical benign bone neoplasms. We believe that the cells involved in >chondroid bone< appearing in osteochondromas temporally express cartilage phenotypes and then change directly into bone-forming cells that survive in the >chondroid bone< until the tissue is resorbed and remodelled into true bone tissue.
