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 axial spiral computed tomography scanning of right knee joint (a-c) without contrast with 3-mm slices (kV = 100, mA = 100), there is a large bony excrescence originated from tibial tubercle and is extended toward knee joint between tibia, femur and patella. The cortex of tibia is in continuation with the cortex of the lesion and the medulla of tibia is also in continuation with that of the lesion

Figure 2: On axial spiral computed tomography scanning of right knee joint (a-c) without contrast with 3-mm slices (kV = 100, mA = 100), there is a large bony excrescence originated from tibial tubercle and is extended toward knee joint between tibia, femur and patella. The cortex of tibia is in continuation with the cortex of the lesion and the medulla of tibia is also in continuation with that of the lesion

Mentions: Computed tomography (CT) scanning study: On axial spiral CT scanning of the right knee joint [Figure 2a–c] without contrast with 3-mm slices (kV = 100, mA = 100), the cortex and the medulla of tibia appears to be in continuation the lesion. The soft-tissues are normal. Therefore, the diagnosis of osteochondroma is more probable.
