Osteochondroma or exostosis is the most common primary bone tumor containing both bone and cartilage. Soft tissue osteochondromas have been described at various locations, however, to the best of our knowledge, there is only a single case report of a soft tissue osteochondroma around the femoral neck. We, hereby report second such case. CASE REPORT: A forty year old female presented with swelling on medial aspect of left thigh since four years. Radiographs showed a large mass at the inferior surface of the left femoral neck...

When insertional Achilles tendinopathy is addressed surgically via a central-Achilles splitting approach, the calcaneal osteotomy has classically been performed from distal to proximal. We describe a simple proximal to distal technique that allows optimal resection of both the calcaneal exostosis and Achilles enthesophyte, minimizes risk to the soft tissues and skin, provides a bony attachment surface parallel to the axis of the Achilles tendon, and avoids the risk of osteotomy extension into the subtalar joint...

BACKGROUND: Spinal osteochondroma is a rare but recognized cause of myelopathy. Brown-Sequard syndrome is a form of severe myelopathy characterized by a clinical picture of hemisection of the spinal cord. Brown-Sequard syndrome caused by osteochondroma is extremely rare, calling for individualized surgical procedures. CASE DESCRIPTION: We reveal a 16-year-old girl with hereditary multiple exostoses as a rare case of thoracic osteochondroma causing partial Brown-Sequard syndrome...

KAT6B sequence variants have been identified in both patients with the Say-Barber-Biesecker-Young-Simpson syndrome (SBBYSS) and in the genitopatellar syndrome (GPS). In SBBYSS, they were reported to affect mostly exons 16-18 of KAT6B, and the predicted mechanism of pathogenesis was haploinsufficiency or a partial loss of protein function. Truncating variants in KAT6B leading to GPS appear to cluster within the proximal portion of exon 18, associated with a dominant-negative effect of the mutated protein, most likely...

Intraosseous lipoma appears less frequently in the maxilla than in the mandible. The initial phase of tumor development is characterized by asymptomatic growth, followed by the presence of pain and paresthesia in the later stage. We report the case of a 43-year-old female patient who contacted a doctor because of periodic pains and stupor in the left side of the upper jaw. The exostosis-like formation was found by palpation, subsequently raising suspicion of an odontogenic tumor on the basis of panoramic imaging (dental orthopan)...

Introduction: Oral tori and exostosis are non-pathological bony protuberances seen on the alveolar surfaces of the jaw bones. These are commonly seen on the palatal surfaces of the maxilla [torus palatinus (TP)] and around the premolars in the lingual surface of the mandible [torus mandibularis (TM)]. The aim of this cross-sectional study was to determine the prevalence of tori/exostosis in the Malaysian population. Methodology: A total of 2666 patients were examined for the presence of tori and exostosis in the maxilla and mandible and were categorized into TP, TM, and exostosis (facial/labial)...

BACKGROUND: Different types of external fixators have been used for humeral lengthening with successful outcomes reported in literature. Motorized intramedullary (IM) lengthening nails have been developed as an alternative to external fixators for long bone lengthening in the lower extremity. QUESTIONS/PURPOSES: This case series reports on using the new technology of IM lengthening nails for humeral lengthening. We assessed the radiological healing and functional outcomes after using the PRECICE IM nail for humeral lengthening...

Hereditary multiple exostoses (HME) represents a heterogeneous group of diseases often associated with progressive skeletal deformities. Most frequently, mutations in EXT1 and EXT2 genes with autosomal dominant inheritance are responsible for HME. In our group of 9 families with HME we evaluated the clinical course of the disease and analysed molecular background using Sanger sequencing and MLPA in EXT1 and EXT2 genes. The mean age in our group of patients, when the first exostosis was recognised was 4.5 years (range 2-10 years) and the number of exostoses per one patient documented on X-ray ranged from 2 to 54...

Torus palatinus (TP), torus mandibularis (TM), and buccal exostosis are localised, benign, osseous projections, occurring in maxilla and mandible. Etiology is multifactorial and not well established. Tori and exostoses have been associated with parafunctional occlusal habits, temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders, migraine and consumption of fish. Concurrence of TP, TM, and exostosis in the same individual is very rare. Concurrence of TPand TM has not been reported from Pakistan. We report a case of a 22-year female patient manifesting concurrence of TP, bilateral TM, and maxillary buccal exostoses; with possible association of abnormal occlusal stresses and use of calcium and vitamin D supplements...

Exostosis in external auditory canal is common among surfers. Common symptoms are decreased hearing or loss of hearing, ear infection, and/or plugging sensation. Repeated exposure to cold water is a key clinical history to suspect this condition. Based on symptoms and existence of infection, surgical removal of the exostosis is recommended.

INTRODUCTION: Osteochondroma or exostosis is most common benign bone tumors. They are usually seen in the metaphyses of long bones with more than 35% of cases affecting the bone around the knee and are seldom found in flat bones like scapula. When present in scapula, they may cause abnormal scapulothoracic movements leading to pain, snapping, and pseudowinging of scapula. CASE REPORT: We describe a novel case of osteochondroma arising on the ventral aspect of right scapula in a 16-year-old otherwise healthy female patient causing snapping and pseudowinging of scapula and occasional pain in affected area...

The isolated gastrocnemius contracture present in neurologic healthy patients results in a significant limitation of ankle dorsiflexion causing pathologic gait patterns and a greater risk of further foot disorders. Gastrocnemius recession is an established procedure to increase ankle dorsiflexion. However, little evidence is available of the use of gastrocnemius recession in these patients. Complication rates, recurrence of gastrocnemius contracture, and the prevalence of additional foot disorders needs further evaluation...
