Osteochondroma of the pubic symphysis is a rare benign skeletal tumor. We report here a case of an osteochondroma of the pubic symphysis associated with a sexual disturbance, where a computed tomography scan clearly showed a tumor lesion of the pubic symphysis. The case is reported not only because of its rarity but also because it is important that gynecologists should bear this disease in mind, since a patient with this tumor may not visit an orthopedist but a gynecologist.
