Title:
Unusual solid mass in the popliteal fossa.
Authors:
Smurthwaite, Katharine Anne; Barnard, E.
Abstract:
We present a clinical case image of a 20-year-old man with a lump behind his knee. A radiograph taken in the emergency department demonstrated the classical appearance of an osteochondroma. Osteochondroma is the commonest skeletal neoplasm. Surgical excision results in symptom resolution in over 90% of patients.
