A rare presentation of osteochondroma presenting as a concurrent sessile and pedunculated mass at proximal humerus managed with 2 stage surgery: A case report

Author(s): Dr. Neel Shah, Dr. JB Panse, Dr. Harsh Raval
Abstract: We report a case of 10 year boy presented to OPD 9 years back, with complains of pain over anteromedial aspect of left arm, difficulty in moving shoulder, tingling and weakness in forearm and hand since 1 month. Xray of the left shoulder revealed a sessile and pedunculated mass over anteromedial and posteromedial aspect of left proximal humerus respectively. Skeletal survey was done to rule out multiple exostosis. Anteromedial sessile mass was removed with decompression of median nerve at that time, which was the cause of signs and symptoms while the posteromedial pedunculated mass was left as it was asymptomatic. Patient came again after 9 years due to discomfort by the pedunculated mass which then grew and became symptomatic. It was excised in the second stage. It was a rare presentation of sessile and pedunculated mass at the same site along with median nerve compression [1] which otherwise is a case of solitary osteochondroma.
