Abstract

Osteochondroma is a benign cartilage-capped overgrowth containing cartilage and bone, connected to the end of the bone by a stalk. Occurrence of osteochondroma at the scapula is a very rare condition. We presented a case report of a 38-year-old male presented with complaints of swelling around his left shoulder and scapula. Osteochondroma at the scapula was suspected. Tumor mass was excised from its peduncle, a medial border of scapula with the help of a chisel. The mass so removed was 9.0 × 7.5cm with smooth cartilage covering. Biopsy confirmed Osteochondroma. The patient recovered conventionally with no cosmetic deformity or discomfort.
