Abstract: Bursae formation is a common complication of osteochondroma. Due to repeated friction and minor trauma, there may be inflammation of bursae leading to leaking of serous fluid. We hereby report a 68 year old male presenting with discharging sinus overlying an osteochondroma of distal femur. In adults with rapidly growing osteochondroma, risk of malignancy should always be suspected.
