ABSTRACT

Diagnosis: Osteochondroma

History: 18 y/o male with a history of right thigh / knee pain and associated inability to bear weight on right leg after sustaining blunt trauma to right medial upper leg 1 day previously.

Findings: Posterior-anterior (PA) radiographs of the right femur and right knee show a pedunculated, calcified mass projecting from the right medial femur with continuity with the medullary cavity. Its stalk measures 3.5 cm x 1.0 cm and ovoid shaped head measuring 2.8 cm x 1.9 cm. This mass shows rings and stippled calcifications consistent with cartilage. The base of the stalk is fractured approximately approximately 3.5 cm above the adductor tubercle, near the distal point of insertion of the vastus medialis muscle. No other bony or soft tissue abnormalities are noted in the radiographs of the right hip, femur or proximal tibia and fibula nor is there other evidence of fracture in any of these structures.

Ddx: Osteochondroma

No MeSH data available.


PA radiograph of the right knee shows pedunculated calcified mass from the right medial femur at the level of the distal 1/3 of the femoral shaft.  The mass extends superior-medially on this view and has a stalk measuring 3.5 cm x 1.0 cm and irregular ovoid shaped cap measuring 2.8 cm x 1.9 cm with chondroid calcifications.  The medullary canal is continuous with the center of the mass.  The mass appears to have fractured cleanly from the medial surface of the distal femur approximately 3.5 cm above the adductor tubercle.  No other evidence of fracture, bony or soft tissue abnormality appreciated in this view.
