Author(s): Misbah Mehraj and Dr. Iqra Shah
Abstract: Osteochondroma are cartilaginous, benign bone lesion. They thought to originate within the periosteum as small cartilaginous nodules. They account for about 30% of benign bone lesion. Common in 2nd decade of life. Mostly asymptomatic and common sites are distal femur, proximal tibia and proximal humerus. Genc B et al reported rare case of distal tibial osteochondroma causing fibular deformity and deep peroneal nerve entrapment neuropathy but we had encountered three cases of distal tibial osteochondroma with fibular deformity and deep peroneal neuropathy from last 1year and is not as rare as previously thought.
