Abstract

Tumors involving the patella are very rare. Only a few studies have been reported. The commonest benign tumor involving the patella is giant cell tumor. We in our study report a case of osteochondroma involving the patella. A 23 year old male patient presented with swelling of left knee of ten year duration. Radiology showed an ill-defined bony mass attached to the patella. We had done an excision of the lesion. The histopathological report was osteochondroma. Two cases reports from Medline have reported about osteochondroma involving patella (9,10). The case is reported for the rarity of presentation.
