The disappearing exostosis? A report of an unusual case.


A girl aged 11 years was referred to us with a medial upper right tibial exostosis. As the lesion was asymptomatic, surgery was not undertaken. The patient defaulted from follow up, and, when reviewed 32 months later, there was no clinical or radiographic evidence of the exostosis. Spontaneous involution of an exostosis may occasionally occur in childhood.
