Turret exostoses are a benign osteocartilaginous lesion.
A turret exostosis is believed to arise from reactive periosteum after relatively mild trauma. It is usually seen as a smooth dome-shaped parosteal bone proliferation.
Turret exostoses are most often found in the phalanges but may also present in rare sites such as the talus 1.
