Introduction: Maffucci syndrome is a rare clinical entity (approximately 200 cases have been reported in the medical literature) with a combination occurrence of multiple enchodroma and vascular tumors.

Case Report: Our patient was an 18 year old girl born in a non-consanguineous marriage with finger and toe bones disorders (enchondroma) causing deformity of fingers and toes with multiple vascular tumors (cavernous hemangioma) in the distal upper and lower limbs. Entire laboratory investigations including thyroid function tests were normal. Cardiovascular examination including EKG and echocardiography were also normal. The abnormal findings on brain CT SCAN with contrast were not observed. Angiographic and histologic studies confirmed the cavernous hemangioma and radiography of fingers and toes approved bone lesions (enchondroma).

Conclusion: A diagnosis of Maffucci syndrome was made by the above mentioned measures.
