Bottom Line: Osteochondroma or exostosis is a bony developmental anomaly, which arises from exophytic outgrowth on bone surfaces in a characteristic manner.Osteochondroma is asymptomatic and grows away from the nearby joint.The lesion grew toward the nearby joint and the radiographic findings were not compatible with surgical findings.

ABSTRACT
Osteochondroma or exostosis is a bony developmental anomaly, which arises from exophytic outgrowth on bone surfaces in a characteristic manner. Osteochondroma is asymptomatic and grows away from the nearby joint. This paper reports an unusual presentation of osteochondroma in which the patient was surprisingly completely symptomatic. The lesion grew toward the nearby joint and the radiographic findings were not compatible with surgical findings.

No MeSH data available.

On anteroposterior (a), lateral (b) views of right knee, there is a large bony excrescence originated from tibial tubercle and is extended toward knee joint between tibia, femur and patella. The lesion is mostly hyperdense containing hypodense lacunae. Its border is crenated. It seems to be intra-articular

Figure 1: On anteroposterior (a), lateral (b) views of right knee, there is a large bony excrescence originated from tibial tubercle and is extended toward knee joint between tibia, femur and patella. The lesion is mostly hyperdense containing hypodense lacunae. Its border is crenated. It seems to be intra-articular

Mentions: Radiography study: On anteroposterior (AP) [Figure 1a], lateral [Figure 1a] and axial [Figure 1b] views of right knee, there is a large bony excrescence originating from tibial tubercle and is extended toward the knee joint between the tibia, femur and patella. The lesion appears to be mostly hyperdense, containing hypodense lacunae with a sharp border. It seems to be intra-articular. The fat lines are normal. No signs of fracture or dislocation can be seen.
