Soft Tissue Osteochondroma in Elbow Joint: A case report


A case of histopathologically verified soft tissue osteochondroma of the elbow joint is presented along with clinical and radiographic findings. The unique feature of this case is that the joint capsule was intact and the tumour was entirely extra-articular. A diagnosis of extraskeletal osteochondroma should be considered when a discrete ossified mass is localized in the soft tissue. Excision and biopsy were performed with complete resolution of the symptoms.
