An osseous outgrowth arising from the medial aspect of the distal femur and directed upwards (away from the joint), its cortex appears continuous with that of the femur.
This is a typical case of osteochondrma, typical clinical presentation (age of patient, painless hump), typical location (femur is the commonest affected bone), typical appearance (pedunculated bony outgrowth that directed away from the joint).
Osteochondromas are the most common bone tumors in children, may be solitary or multiple.
The true prevalence of solitary osteochondromas is not known, because many asymptomatic lesions go undiagnosed.
A painless skeletal swelling or a slowly growing mass is the usual mode of presentation.
Most osteochondromas, solitary or multiple, arise from tubular bones and are metaphyseal in location.
