The authors discuss seven cases of parosteal tumors treated conservatively by diaphyseal and metaphyseal hemiresection with cortical autograft reconstruction. This treatment yielded excellent clinical and functional results without having to resort to resection and arthrodesis or prosthetic replacement. The slow growth and low malignancy of these tumors make the use of this technique possible even at the risk of local recurrence, which, if discovered early, can still be treated by further conservative procedures.
