Dr. Vikas Anand, Dr. Vishal Sidhu
Abstract: Osteochondromas being the commonest variety of benign neoplasm is usually seen in the second decade of life. Common sites of occurrence are distal femur, proximal tibia but scapula is an unusual site to occur with an incidence of 3-4 % worldwide. We describe here case of a woman aged 37 years with supraclavicular mass and painful shoulder movements. On roentgenography, CT the mass was pedunculated arising from superomedial angle of scapula. Grossly mass was irregular grayish-white with a cartilaginous cap characteristic of the lesion. Complete excision was done. Patient had full functional recovery. Uncommon site of occurrence and unusual age of the presentation prompted us to write this case report.
