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.

Figure 3: On anteroposterior and lateral views of right knee after surgery, the tumor is completely resected and the joint space is intact

Mentions: During surgery, a lobulated, pink and firm bony mass lesion was seen to have extended from the tibial tubercle toward the knee joint but surprisingly not into the actual joint space. On AP and lateral views of right knee after surgery [Figure 3], the tumor is completely resected and the joint space is intact.
