© 2017 Elsevier Inc. Enchondromas occur with an estimated modern incidence rate of 27.7% of benign bone tumors (Hauben and Hogendoorn, 2010), but few are represented in the paleopathological record. The medieval site of St. Pere in Spain has produced a convincing case. The diagnosis was confirmed by X-Ray, CT-scan and μ-CT scan. Therefore UF 755 from St. Pere – a male of more than 60 years old – can be confirmed as a femoral case of enchondroma, supported by evidence, in the paleopathological record.
