Bizarre parosteal osteochondromatous proliferation (BPOP), also called Nora’s lesion, is an unusual, benign, bony lesion frequently found in the hand. Originally, two of the key radiological features used to describe such lesions were: (1) a lack of corticomedullar continuity and (2) an origin from the periosteal aspect of an intact cortex. The authors present 2 unique cases of histologically proven BPOP in which the integrity of the cortex was affected. In the first case there was medullary continuity, and in the second case there was saucerization of the underlying cortical bone. The authors support that simple X-ray evaluation is insufficient to diagnose BPOP in atypical cases. Careful axial CT scanning or MRI may prove helpful. Taking into account these new notions, histopathology gains greater importance as a diagnostic tool for this particular group of entities.
Introduction: Osteochondroma is the most common benign tumour of the bone and is considered as developmental lesion of the bone. Common site of osteochondroma presentation is around the knee but calcaneal osteochondroma as such is a rare entity. Osteochondromas grow during childhood through adolescence, but usually the growth of osteochondroma ends when the epiphyseal plates close. In an adult, growth of an osteochondroma suggests the diagnosis of a malignant transformation. However, it can also present as pressure symptom in later phase of life. Here, we presented a case of retrocalcaneal bursitis in late phase of life of a male farmer due to late growth of osteochondroma. Case Presentation: We report a case of calcaneal osteochondroma which is an extremely rare site of occurrence with painful swelling of ankle causing limitation of walking in a 58-year-old male. Surgical excision of tumour followed by a histological confirmation reported negative for any malignant changes. Conclusion: There may be
Osteochondroma may develop as a solitary or multiple lesions which are known as hereditary multiple exostoses (HME). The incidence rate of HME is about 12 % of all osteochondromas (Gille et al. 2005). Particularly, the incidence of osteochondroma in the spine is reported to be very rare in the literature (Khosla et al. 1999). The spinal involvement of HME is about 7-9 % (Giudicissi-Filho et al. 2006), whereas that of solitary osteochondroma is about 1-4 % (Chooi et al. 2005). This tumor can occur in any vertebrae of the spine, but the cervical spine is commonly involved in about 50 % (Murphey et al. 2000). The most frequent site is the C2 vertebral bone, followed by C3 and C6 (Chatzidakis et al. 2007; Maheshwari et al. 2006; Schomacher et al. 2009). Osteochondroma typically occurs in young patients, but those of the spine usually occur during the second to third decades of life (Bess et al. 2005; Sakai et al. 2002). Sakai et al. suggested that degenerative changes of the vertebrae might ...
Although palsy of the long thoracic nerve is the classical pathogenesis of winging scapula, it may also be caused by osteochondroma. This rare etiopathology has previously been described in pediatric patients, but it is seldom observed in adults. We describe three cases of static scapular winging with pain on movement. Case 1 is a Caucasian woman aged 35 years with a wing-like prominence of the medial margin of her right scapula due to an osteochondroma originating from the ventral omoplate. Histopathological evaluation after surgical resection confirmed the diagnosis. The postoperative course was unremarkable without signs of recurrence on examination at 2 years. Case 2 is a Caucasian woman aged 39 years with painful scapula alata and neuralgic pain projected along the left ribcage caused by an osteochondroma of the left scapula with contact to the 2nd and 3rd rib. Following surgical resection, the neuropathic pain continued, demanding neurolysis of the 3rd and 4th intercostal nerve after 8 months. The
The bony mass had a cartilage cap and the tentative diagnosis of an osteochondroma was made. The patient was not known to have any other exostoses.. Intra-operatively a bony mass with a cartilage cap was found, compressing the L5 and S1 spinal root. The mass was excised and sent for histology. A laminectomy was done.. The histology confirmed an osteochondroma.. Discussion. Of all spinal tumours, 70% of primary bone tumours are benign. These include osteoid osteomas, osteoblastomas, giant cell tumours, osteochondromas, aneurysmal bone cysts, eosinophilic granulomas and fibrous dysplasias.1. Osteochondromas (also known as osteocartilaginous exostoses)2 encompass 10-15% of all bone tumours3 and 36% of all benign bone tumours.4 Primary tumours of the spine are relatively infrequent when compared to lymphoma of the spine, myeloma and multiple myeloma.5. Osteochondromas are solitary (often) and are cartilaginous bony growths, usually appearing in relation to the epiphyseal growth plate.6 They can be ...
Also called osteocartilaginous exostoses, osteochondroma is an overgrowth of cartilage and bone near the end of the bone near the growth plate. This type of overgrowth can occur in any bone where cartilage eventually forms bone. Most commonly, it affects the long bones in the leg, the pelvis, or scapula (shoulder blade).. Osteochondroma is the most common benign (noncancerous) bone growth. The lesion usually occurs during skeletal growth between the ages of 10 and 30 years. It affects males and females equally.. ...

The solitary osteochondroma may appear anywhere but, to focus on the upper extremity, grows from the shoulder blade (scapula), humerus, radius/ ulna, or fingers (phalanges) most commonly. These osteochondromas typically arise from the growth plate but can also arise from cartilage of the joint. The osteochondroma is most often painless but may also be painful, especially when pressure is applied to the lump. There is more likely to be associated pain if it is applying pressure near a nerve or if the bump is particularly close to the skin. One of the biggest issues is bone deformity related to the growth of the osteochondroma. This is especially problematic in the forearm (or lower leg) as irregular growth of one bone will affect the growth of the other in the same segment. The most common situation is when an osteochondroma of the ulna limits the growth of the ulna due to its relationship to the growth plate near the end of the ulna. If the ulna growth does not keep up with the radius growth, ...

I have a 2 to 3 inch (diameter) osteochondroma on my femur medial to my knee. (left leg) Recently I have been expieriencing pain. It feels similar to when you need to crack your elbow by extending it. The pain is brought on by attempting to raise my left heel and touch it to my right knee. If i move slowly, i can get about 2/3 the way there then I lose strength and feel pain. If I move faster, I can touch my heel to my knee but I feel a sharp pain midway and when I move back. It feels very similar to cracking your elbow. I also feel a similar pain when i attempt to make my femur parallel to the ground while keeping my lower leg perpendicular to the ground. Some everyday activities that cause pain are walking long distances, walking up or down stairs or an incline, getting in and out of a car and changing clothes. Will the pain subside eventually? Getting the tumor removed is my last option because I am currently working and I am going to college in the fall. ...
Solitary osteochondroma is a very unusual cause of spinal cord compression. The tumor is benign, and surgical removal produces an excellent clinical result. We have experienced a case of solitary osteochondroma in the posterier neural arch of the 11th thoracic vertebra which compressed spinal cord and resulted in paraparesis. Plain spine x-ray revealed calcified bony lesion with smooth border at Tll level. Myelogram showed nearly complete blockage of dye column, extradural type, at the Tll level. Total laminectomies including the pathological lesion resulted in excellent recovery ...

Osteochondromas are the rare benign and malignant tumour of the growing bone, usually affecting the young adults. Solitary osteocartilaginous exostosis is more common than the hereditary multiple exostosis (HME). The first 3 decades of life has maximum chances of getting affected with osteochondroma and hardly occurs in craniofacial bones because of the fact that these bones are not formed by endochondral ossification. Most of the symptoms occur at the periphery of the bone tissues, with causes of osteochondroma being unknown. It involves in genetic condition and is associated with mutations of EXT1 or EXT2 genes. Diagnosis is difficult at symptomless stage, incidentally it is diagnosed when X-ray is carried out. Detection of tumor by ultra sound is accurate than other diagnosis process. No treatment is required other than regular monitoring of tumor. Standard allele specific PCR based techniques on osteochondroma showing both recombine and intact alleles were reported. The observation shows ...
The radiograph in Figure 1 corresponds to the carpus of the horse which became lame ONLY after heavy work. Once he was lame, the lameness was resolved by injecting carbocaine into carpal joints. Careful radiographic examination of the carpus and the surrounding structures noted a bony protuberance along the distal, palmar aspect of the radius (Figure 1 and 2). This finding is consistent with an osteochondroma formation. In humane medicine, an osteochondroma is defined as " an abnormal, solitary, benign growth of bone and cartilage, typically at the end of a long bone". In horses, osteochondroma formation is not common however when it does occur, the occurs commonly along the lower end (distal) aspect of the radius. In this location, the osteochondroma may cause irritation to the surrounding soft tissue structures including the carpal sheath. ...

Levator Scapulae Syndrome is an historical name for pain over the upper medial angle of the scapula[1] that is still used in clinical practice in some places around the world.  This terminology (and use of the word syndrome) describes a set of signs and symptoms that often present together without identifying the cause of the pain and dysfunction, as is the case with other syndromes such as chronic fatigue syndrome and irritable bowel syndrome. It is widely considered better practice to use more specific terminology that refers to relevant causative factors that can be addressed during treatment.

Osteochondromas, which are benign bone tumors that usually develop on long bones, tubular bones, are rarely found in the spine. If they are located in the spinal canal, they may cause nerve root or spinal cord compression, which is a rare but potentially catastrophic manifestation of osteochondromas.

Surgery may also be necessary to correct painful limb abnormalities that are caused by multiple osteochondromas. Surgery may be needed to cut and realign the bones that have become deformed, which is known as osteotomy.[2] If the legs are not equal in length, treatment may include a procedure to slow down the growth of the longer leg. Surgery may also be needed to correct the forearm deformity seen in this condition. Adults with this condition who have untreated forearm deformities usually do not have significant functional limitations.[1] Although rare, an osteochondroma can become cancerous (malignant), which usually takes the form of a low grade chondrosarcoma. This type of malignant tumor is unlikely to spread elsewhere in the body. Higher grades of ...
HISTORY S.G. is a 12 year old BF who presented with a chief complaint of left knee pain on the medial aspect of the proximal tibia. The pain was described as a dull, aching pain present for one years time, occassionally awakening her from sleep and occassionally worsening with sports activities. Her past medical history was essentially unremarkable. There was a questionable family history for bony tumors. PHYSICAL EXAMINATION Physical examination revealed full range of motion of all her extremities. She was neurovascularly intact. DTRs were normal and symmetric. Palpation at the left knee revealed an asymptomatic mass at the distal femur medially and a painful protrusion at the medial proximal tibia. XRAYS X-rays of her left knee in the AP/lat/oblique views revealed multiple exostoses of the distal femur and proximal tibia. These were also noted in bilateral forearm films at the proximal and distal poles ...
Multiple osteochondromas is an autosomal dominant skeletal disorder characterized by the formation of multiple cartilage-capped tumours. Two causal genes have been identified, EXT1 and EXT2, which account for 65% and 30% of cases, respectively. We have undertaken a mutation analysis of the EXT1 and EXT2 genes in 39 unrelated Spanish patients, most of them with moderate phenotype, and looked for genotype-phenotype correlations. We found the mutant allele in 37 patients, 29 in EXT1 and 8 in EXT2. Five of the EXT1 mutations were deletions identified by MLPA. Two cases of mosaicism were documented. We detected a lower number of exostoses in patients with missense mutation versus other kinds of mutations. In conclusion, we found a mutation in EXT1 or in EXT2 in 95% of the Spanish patients. Eighteen of the mutations were novel ...
On to Matthew. Poor guy. He has a lump on his leg and has been complaining A LOT about it hurting. He asks me to rub his leg at night and it causes him to limp. Long story but the school nurse had me all in a tizzy about getting it xrayed immediately (even suggested going to the emergency room) and was making it sound like something horrible like cancer. I got him in to see his pediatrician that day, got the xray done and she called me the next day. It does not appear to be cancer, thank the Lord for that! She said what she believes it to be is something called an osteochondroma, which is a non-malignant bone tumor. I have an appointment to take him to a pediatric orthopedist on April 18th. Theyll take another look at his xrays, decide if there needs to be more testing and what we are going to do about it. Normally they dont like to remove them until the kids are done growing (which is about 18 for boys, so another 6 years for him), because they can grow back. But I would really like it ...

I asked Gary about prions--they do not have DNA, nor are they a life form. Theyre a protein, but one that works backwards, coming into a cell from the outside and forming a complex w/ RNA (no one fully understands how or why). But the prion somehow then manages to send a signal *back* to the DNA in the cells gene(s), hence screwing up the gene(s). So prions are probably implicated in things like BSE or possibly even Creuzfeld (sp?)-Jacob disease. ...

The adipose tissue was collected from the abdomen and inner thigh after infiltration with sodium chloride 0.9% mixed with 2% lidocaine (2 mg/mL) and 1-milliliter epinephrine (1 mg/mL). It was then centrifuged at 3,000 rpm for 5 minutes. The central layer, consisting of usable fat, was then separated from the upper layer (oil) and lower layer (blood and liquid infiltrations) and injected into the body. During the first operation, 70 cc autologous fat was harvested from the abdomen and injected into the painful region of her left scapula. The patient was very satisfied with the result and she experienced relief of her pain for 1 year. Subsequently, surgery was repeated 1 year later and 51 mL autologous fat from the abdomen and flanks was injected into her left scapula as well as 2 mL into the 5th digit of the left foot. This procedure was repeated again 1 year later with harvested fat from the abdomen and an injection of 60 mL into the left scapula, 3 mL into the left foot, and 12 mL autologous ...
ABSTRACT. Eight children aged 1-14 yrs with defects in the forearm were treated with the one-bone forearm procedure and followed up for 1-11 yrs. The defects were due to pyogenic osteomyelitis (n=3), osteochondroma (n=3), neurofibromatosis (n=1) and ulnar dysmelia (n=1). The radius was fixed to the ulna shaft with an intramedullary pin in six cases, and two children had centralisation of the radial metaphysis onto the ulna for "radial club hand" type deformity with Kirschner wires. All forearms united in 3-6 months. Shortening ranged from 1-10 cm. Fixed flexion deformity of the elbow (20°) resulted in one child and cubitus valgus (20°) occurred in another. One child had a radial articular tilt of 45°. The procedure achieved stability at the wrist and elbow. There was cosmetic and functional improvement in all patients.. ...
