Abstract

Osteochondromas seldom arise from the interosseous border of the distal tibia and may progress to involve the distal fibula. We present the case of a 14-year-old teenager with a stress fracture of the distal fibula, secondary to an osteochondroma arising from the distal tibia. Early excision of this deforming distal tibial osteochondroma was necessary in order to avoid a progressive deformity which would affect the biomechanics of the ankle joint resulting in gait disturbances.
