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.

(a and b) Microscopic examination reveals proliferation in osteoid and chondroid tissue. Lamellar and mature trabeculae of bone are located in the center and are separated by fibro-fatty tissue and capillary vessels. These bony trabeculae are covered by a thick layer of hyaline cartilage. There is no evidence of malignancy and the features are those of benign osteochondroma
