Abstract

We report the case of a left superior pubic ramus osteochondroma occurring in a 29-year-old man. The patient consulted for a multiple exostoses disease revealed by a painful induration at the base of his penis. This induration was increasing in volume and causing discomfort during sexual intercourse and when sitting for a prolonged period of time. CT-scan examination showed a pedunculated osteochondroma of the left superior pubic ramus compressing the urethra. Surgical resection of the tumor confirmed the diagnosis of osteochondroma. At a 2-year follow-up delay, all symptoms had regressed with no evidence of recurrence.
